Baby boy card

This evening I'd like to share a baby boy card with you I've just made for a Sketch challenge over on Trimcraft. I love this Sugar Nellie stamp for baby cards.

The papers are a mix, the star one is a Magnolia paper, but the rest I'm not too sure where I got them from. I've added lots of pearl gems (Meiflower), Stickles glitter, bow and a cute heart charm (Hobbyhouse).
