GDP123 Congratulations for Sawyer

Hi peeps!  It's Wednesday, halfway through the week!  My nephew (the same one who did our remodel) and his wife had their baby yesterday, a little brother for Jameson!  I loved our As You See It sketch for his week:

so I thought I would use it again, this time flipping it so my little critters weren't staring off into space on the other side of the card:

I opted to do something a little different than a traditional blue card; my nephew is an avid outdoorsman, so I thought these little forest creatures from Thankful Forest Friends would be fun:

The plaid paper is from Carta Bella's Christmas Delivery but it works great here, don't you think?  I stamped each of the critters and fussy-cut them out, then added some black grosgrain ribbon and a few little enamel dots.  The congrats stamp is from  last year's Suite Sentiments.  The Global Design Project's challenge theme is "New Beginnings", so I am entering there as well:

And here are the happy parents:

We are thrilled to welcome Sawyer into our family!  You can't tell from here, but he looks just like his big brother!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!
