Baby's 1st Christmas

I created this baby's first Christmas card using Baby's First Taste Of Snow from Karen's Doodles. I used the colors pale blue, navy blue and white for the challenges at Simon Says Stamp (Christmas with no red/green), Stamp Scrap N Doodle (monochromatic), Ann's Creative Nook (non-traditional Christmas colors), Cupcake Inspiration (blue & white snowflake cupcake photo inspiration), Cupcake Craft (non-traditional Christmas colors), and Incy Wincy (non-traditional Christmas colors). The card base is pale blue back in white then backed in navy blue. I added crystal stickles to the white. I back the image and sentiment the same way. I punched a strip of white cardstock using a drippy goo border punch and added a pale blue ribbon to the top of the strip along with a bow to the top of the sentiment. I added stickles to the bottom of the punched border and to the top just above the ribbon. The pale blue ribbon is for the challenges at Top Tip Tuesday and Frosted Designs.

I punched snowflakes out of white and small snowflakes out of pale blue. I added crystal stickles to the snowflakes and blue pearls to the center of the snowflakes. I added the stickles for the sparkle & shine challenges at Fresh Brewed and The Pixie Cottage. The snowflakes are for the challenges at Alota Rubber Stamps and Wags N Whiskers. To finish my card I added blue pearls to the bottom left corner and to the bottom of the sentiment.

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:
