Welcome Baby for SIP Challenge 45

I had been wanting to create a card using a newsprint pattern paper, and while a baby card didn't seem appropriate, I decided to give it a shot.  So I created this card for SIP Challenge #45.

 I stamped my images onto the pattern paper, and I was careful to lightly watercolor with distress markers so the paper wouldn't pill. 

Now I know that ribbon is a bit on the outs these days, but I love a touch of ribbon on a card.  I do find that I use it less, but I can't give it up completely. 

I hope you find some time to create today!
