Cards For Men 2nd challenge - New


Here's my DT card for this month's challenge at Cards For Men, where this month we'd like to see all things 'new' - so 'new home', 'new job', 'new baby' etc, and obviously they have to be for men or boys.
I decided to make a baby boy card, but I fancied doing something a little bit different so I've not used blue... of course this had nothing to do with these new MME 'beloved' papers that I bought with my Bunny Zoe vouchers and me being desperate to use them lol. Hopefully it still works for a boy though. The image is an Elzybells stamp, coloured with promarkers and cut out with nestie squares. Cardstock is a mix of coredinations and DCWV. The sentiment stamp was in one of the goody bags that Funky Kits were selling ages ago, and I've cut it out with nestie circles and then mounted it onto a nellie snellen die. The buttons were also Bunny Zoe purchases - I was very impressed with the store and the service and will definitely use them again. Finished off with a few large flat back pearls.

I'm also entering my card for the following challenges:
