Congratulations

Hello there!  It's my turn to host over on the Kennedy Grace Creations blog today.  I've got another cute baby card to share.  I've used the stamp set Sweet Baby Mine and the Winter Mint sequin mix.
 
I stamped the image on the green dot patterned paper and colored it.  Then to add some dimension I stamped the image again on a scrap of white cardstock and then colored it and fussy cut it out trimming off his mane and tail.  Then I used pop dots to add the dimension.
