A Card For Baby Sam

I just found out that the talented Alison Acton (one of brilliant illustrator's at whiff of joy) is expecting to give Birth to her First baby….... a boy (whose name is to be Sam) next Friday (16th October), So Bev, Jacqui and Rach would like us to send Alison and her husband Jim a card to mark this special occasion and to show how much we appreciate Alison's work and dedication.
To find out more about what you need to do and also how to be in with a chance to win 2 beautiful stamps from Alison's collection hop on over to Rach's Blog or Bev's blog or Jacqui's Blog where you can read all about it.
I made my card for Alison & Jim with 2 large die cuts from my own range and I made a kind of hinge to help it stand up I think the photo shows how I done it (sorry the photos are not clearer).
I used the lovely WoJ Willow holding baby stamp and coloured her with Copic markers, the flowers are Prima and the charm is from MM .
The Ribbon is from Ribbon Oasis, the DP is My Minds Eye "Laundry Line"
The sentiment stamp is from my own range.
I wish Alison and Jim good luck for next Friday, and a big welcome to little baby Sam.
I have entered this card into these challenges

Cute card Thursday challenge - So Charming

Cardvarks Challenge - Bows
