Baby boy

Hi everyone!  I am preparing to leave for CHA, so this blog post will be short.  My card today uses the cutie new Verve set, To the Moon.  I absolutely LOVE the whimsical Verve-y style to this baby set.  Seriously, an instant FAVORITE of mine! 
I totally fell in love with how Amy made the elephant hanging out of the window and had to do the same thing with this card!  The strip of horizontal stars is actually made from an accent stamp of 3 stars.  I added a small silver pearl to the larger stars.  Happy sigh...

The sketch is last week's Card Pattern's sketch 98.  Yeah, a week late -that's how I roll lately.  lol!

I leave for CHA Friday morning and won't be home until late Tuesday, so things will be quiet around here.  There will be one pre-posted special blog hop on Feb 1st, so keep an eye out for that.  Thanks for stopping by!
