When I saw this week's BBTB2 challenge, I wanted to join the fun. I thought about the sun from Doodlecharms requirement and I decided to pair it with a cut I have had in my head for weeks. It is the little airplane, banner and clouds from New Arrival.

I have been wanting to make a baby boy card even though nobody I know is having a boy. I even bought some paper just for the card but didn't use it. I used some boyish paper that I received for free from CK-Manchester convention. The paper stack is made by CKeepsakes.

It didn't cut well in the Cricut. It's thin paper and I'm used to designer paper/cardstock weight.

BUT I'm pretty happy with it. I just cant STAND to make a card without ribbon though! The way I designed, it didn't really have room for a ribbon.

I made it 4.5" x 7" or so. It will fit in a #10 business envelope with room to spare. I embossed the sun with divine swirls and the background with swiss dots. I used a couple of brads and a small brown pearl on the propeller. So cute!
