A colleague of mine had 2 wee baby girls on Friday morning, so I needed a special baby card for her! I took the Great Impressions duckie stamp and made a second duck on a tube using a Stamp-a-ma-jig. I only had to do it once; that's a record for me for this kind of alteration!! I drew in the missing line to link it to the first tube.

I used Copics to match the papers (Pebbles, Inc.) and used a funny edged Nesty to make the first layer using Papertrey's hibiscus Burst as my background solid.

The sun is a Boss Cut die with a cute little face drawn on and some 'glitter glue around the edges. Truth be told, that little sun is hiding a blip from a Copic when I pulled the lid off over the colored image- lesson learned- those Copics can have juice in the caps- beware!!

Some glitter glue on the tubes flowers, then some Papertrey Silk 1/4 inch ribbon colored with the matching Copic of the ducks to tie two bows.

Jess has a youngster at home, and I thought I might add the three little girls names to the bottom of the ducks. Will have to think about that!

The finished card us a business size, I think it came out to be 3.75 x 9.0 inches.

So cute and colorful! Love using ducks on baby cards. I'd place the names on the card. That would really personalize it.
