If There's A Girl There Must Be A Boy

Well, like the title says - if I was making girls cards these previous days, I just had to make some for a baby boy as well. But this time I went for something more modern.
Brown and blue is my favorite color combo and it goes so well for boys :) And polka dots - well that's another favorite of mine - just somehow I forget to use it very often. This particular paper is designed by me and printed out on my printer.
Main card shape was die cut using Sizzix Grand Nestabilities One. But that center blue piece was made using Sizzix Sizzlits Bracket insert die and embossed with Diamond embossing folder.
I tried to color this lovely elephant as lightly as I could while maintaining bluish tones. Image was diecut using Labels Sixteen die. Some inking was also done using Distress ink.
I also added some brown lace, large flower brad that I colored with Copic marker. I tied some small piece of brown polka dot ribbon through that brad. And just for some little glam touch I added pearls to all corners.

Hope that little champ will appreciate this :)
