Welcome Baby Elliot James

I made a card for my friend Hilary when she became a grandmother for the first time back in September. She sent me some photographs and I made this card using one of them and a selection of papers and stickers from Kaisercraft.

I also used some white Bazzill, blue ribbon and some gems and pearls.

Congratulations to Hilary and to Chris and Steph as well of course
Thanks for looking
