Sweet Cheeks

Good Morning
Meet today's card.  
A simple one for some special friends that just welcomed a new baby boy.  Such an exciting time.

So here's what I did to create my card.
I began with a piece of white cardstock, then I chose 2 Copic markers in colours that would compliment each other and drew my background plaid.  It is really pretty easy to do and you can create any type of plaid you want.  If you feel like you don't have a steady enough hand, use a ruler to help draw the lines.  I just went for it trying to space out my lines as best I could.

When I was happy with the plaid bkg. I placed the panel into my Misti and stamped the's such a fun one from a set I got at a garage sale.
On another piece of cardstock, I stamped the buggie, coloured it using the same colours as the plaid then fussy cut it out so I could pop dot it over the sentiment.
I mounted it all onto a heavy white card base.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.
