A card for a baby boy

Hey there! It's a midway reminder of the current challenge that's going on at Crafty ribbons challenge blog. The theme of the current challenge was chosen by Marianne and I have to admit I had quite some problems with it. She chose "one for the boys" as a theme and I am really not all that great at making boys cards/projects. So this was a tough one for me. At the end I decided to make a card for a baby boy. Many of my friends are having or are expecting babies right now and they are all (going to be) boys! So I better stock on baby cards. ;)

Here's how my turned out ...

I'm quite happy with the result. I used my leftover scraps of paper. The blue ones are from Provo craft, the brown is a piece of recycled wrapping paper and the white one is just a white cardstock which I embossed with Cotage floral embossing folder. The doily, confetti and gems are from my stash. The image is a Viva decor clear stamp. I colored it with Faber Castell pencils and added some Stickles on it. The buttons and ribbons are from Crafty ribbons - I used khaki grosgrain ribbon, light blue dotty baby ribbon and knit buttons.

I would like to enter this card to the following challenges:
Creative card crew: Masculine
One crazy stamper: Anything goes
Mojo Monday: Sketch
Really reasonable ribbon: Flowers and ribbon (I used flower confetti and there are some flowers in the image too)
Tuesday alchemy: Anything goes
Bizzy Becs: Anything goes
