*baby boy double pocket card*

A friend of mine is expecting a baby boy any day now, so I thought I'd better get busy and make her a card. I needed a little inspiration, so I browsed through the baby cards over at Splitcoast Stampers and ran across this amazingly sweet double pocket card by ChristineCreations. Oh my, is that girl talented! I love the Bella Rose papers she used, but they were a bit too girly for a baby boy card, so I switched things up a bit while keeping the same overall design. I have a mountainous (is that a word?) stack of paper I've been trying to use, and I was happy to find these cuties from a Nana's Nursery stack I bought a while back at JoAnn's. They were just the boyish colors I needed. I also pulled out some stamps I haven't inked up yet and some ribbon I've been "collecting" (yes "collecting"... not "hoarding").
