A new begining for a baby boy's MOJO

Cryptic title..... No not really it.  I have made a card that fit three challenges.  Firstly is the theme, both Stamping for the Weekend and Cards for Men wanted cards that were about new beginnings.  So since Cards for men need a male oriented card I chose the new life of a baby boy.  The sketch for the card was from the Mojo Monday's sketch.

I used SU Designer paper from Spring Break and Parisian Breeze.  The images are from The Greeting Farm Oh baby set.

The yellow DP paper had chocolate waves through it so I crush it up and then inked it up with cocoa ink to give it  a more distressed look.  Added faux stitching around the square and used copics and SU markers to colour.

Keep Safe
