This week's challenge at Crafts4Eternity is a Royal/regal theme.  I have used this rubber stamp from Lily of the Valley which is still one of my favourite stamps from them.

 I managed to find some baby boy papers by Teresa Collins which I thought would work well with my chosen stamp.

I've left the fancy label die blank ready for a personal message.  I was tempted to write something I thought was witty but decided in the end to leave it to the sender!!!


Medium:  Copics (plus pencils just for skin tone), blue ink pad for distressing , white gel pen, Sukura red pen
Papers:   Teresa Collins Baby Boy papers, Silver Mirri, Black cardstock, Neenah cardstock for colouring
Punches:  Martha Stewart border punch (Crown shape)
Dies used:  Spellbinders fancy frame, fancy label (for message)and Swirl flower, Magnolia border and leaf dies, Marianne flourish
Embellishments:  Butterflies, clear gems, tiny white brads, Ribbon and bow

Best wishes,
