Just add Ink Challenge #3

My sister recently had a beautiful baby boy, so I was in need of a sweet boy card!  I used the sketch from the Just add Ink Challenge #3:
Here's my card:
As you can see, I've used one of my new paper lace doilys that I showed yesterday - they are so pretty and delicate!
This is a square card which measures 13cm x 13cm in Bordering Blue cardstock.  Some stars have been stamped to make a BG.  I've layered a strip of pattern paper from Basic Grey - you can just see the little elephants along the bottom!  Then I've added a strip of Sky Blue on which I've used the Eyelet border punch.  On this is some of the striped ribbon in Pacific Point.
The elephant image is from Nursery Necessities - I've stamped him up in Pacific Point ink and then cut out, mounting onto the doily with dimensionals.  I've added a blue button with a bow in twine. 
The sentiment is from the same set and I've used the Window punch to cut this out.
And lastly I've tied a piece of twine at the end of the striped ribbon.  Here's a closer look:
I hope you like it - you can check out heaps more amazing creations at Just add Ink.  Thanks for a great sketch girls.

Very cute card (and congratulations on your new nephew!). You've inspired me to dust off the paper doilies I've been hoarding for far too long!
