Wish Upon A Star Baby Boy

I created this circle card for the it's all about circles challenge at Sassy Cheryl's and the shaped cards challenge at Top Tip Tuesday.  The image I used is called Special Stork Delivery Boy.  The base of my card is a pre-cut circle card.  I cut a circle out of black iris (dark blue) cardstock the same size as the card and backed it in white cardstock. I cut around the white cardstock using scalloped scissors.and then added it to the card base.  I cut a piece of baby boy patterned paper to fit the bottom half of the card.  I colored the image using crayola and prisma colored pencils and cut it out in a smaller circle.  I backed the image in primary blue cardstock and cut around it using scalloped scissors.  I added the image to the upper part of the card.  I punched 3 stars out of primary blue cardstock. I added them around the image and added stardust stickles.  I stamped the sentiment using navy blue ink, cut around it, added it to the lower part of the card and then added stardust stickles to the letters.

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:
