Limelight Sketch #64/Baby card

Greetings.  So pretty outside today.  Beautiful snowflakes are falling outside my window.  ahhhhhhh....
Managed to get my son's cold so I am scooping them up for a nap in a bit.  The little guy won't nap anymore (even when he REALLY needs one) unless I lay with him or sit in his room with him.  Sometimes we cuddle up in mom and dad's bed with some books, read/look for a bit and fall asleep.  They call it a nap, I call it cuddle time while I still can with them.  The boys are 3 1/2 and 5 1/2. 

The card I am sharing was inspired by Limelight Papercrafts Sketch Challenge #64 shown below.  This is a baby card for church.  I am slowly making cards for the children's director to send out to families with new babies. 

The "ribbon" is fuzzy with wire inside of it which was rather thick.  To get the top to adhere to the card, I decided to just pop that layer.  I really like the dimension it gave!   
Gives it some extra substance.

Here's the Sketch:

Paper: BG "Olivia" and cardstock from HL
Cricut: outer Butterfly "Storybook"; circle "George"
Ribbon: Hobby Lobby
Stamp: Hero Arts
Ink:  Distress Peeled Paint
Punches: EK Success "Donut chain", MS "butterfly"

Thanks for stopping by today.  Now to find some little boys for a nap..... -Kelly
