Rock-a-bye Baby

This little Rocking Horse seemed just right for a Baby Boy card - and I need a few of those at the moment, it's Boys Boys Boys around here!

The cute little image is one of CC Designs February release Digi Stamps from All That Scraps, available in store on February 25th.  Go and check out their blog where you can see the rest of the Design team's fabulous efforts, not only with this image but the others in the release!  I will post my other offerings later today.  Please come back and have a looksie, they're very sweet, interested? Here's a link, and here's another.
I cut the mat for this image with my Nestabilities Labels Twelve which means another entry in Bizzy Becs competition - for Aussie customers only sorry (well, sorry that you can't ALL be Aussies anyway, lol)  and coloured the  image with Copics, I've ordered more so I'll have an even greater range of colours soon -I really AM addicted!  
I used some Grace Taylor paper I've had for ages as the background of the card.  Because this paper is pretty flimsy I find it doesn't always "edge" nicely: for this reason I covered the back and front of the card in one piece, less raw edges.
I used the sketch from Do It With Digis for their challenge this week: I do like a nice straightforward sketch!
The little safety pins and bow were part of my christmas present from my son, he included some really cute little elements like these and that lovely paper with the circles on.
I stamped and embossed the sentiment, added a bit of bling on the stirrup and rockers, popped a few things up on foam dots and that, as they say, was that.
The inside of this clean and simple card got a clean and simple finish too.
Digital Tuesday has punches as it's theme this week, this card has a die cut on the outside, but two border punches on the inside, so I'll enter there.  Totally Papercrafts challenge #54 is Do it with Digis - I am so THERE! Crazy 4 Challenges has "Use dies", again, there....and Totally Gorjuss has "Checks" - "check" out that blue paper behind the image, "check", Checks....well I think it's check, maybe a grid hmmm, we'll give it a try or I may "check" and see if it is enterable!
Well come back later, and "check" out my other posts for the ATS release... until then, Happy Crafting, Dee

I gifted this same card for my sister 's daughter on her birthday. But I was done it with the elephant and ant with red, blue and yellow combinations. She receive that with the sweet smile and I will share that moment in my blog soon.
