Welcome Baby Allan

A friend I used to work with recently had a baby boy, due to complications he was born at 25 weeks, fortunately he seems to be a fighter and is doing very well considering his gestation. I wanted a card to send to them in hospital to brighten up his room/humicrib since they will be down in Sydney for the next 3 months or so before he can come home.
14/7/09 ETA: Heaven has 1 more angel, Allan was laid to rest today. He fought as hard as he could but he didn't make it.
It didn't show up well in the photo but the middle elephant is actually stamped 3 times, I stamped him straight onto the Whisper White piece of cardstock, then again on some scrap with the stitching, cut out and raised up over the 1st elephant using dimensionals, then I stamped him again, cut out his ear stitched it and layered it using another dimensional.
Stamps: Wild About You, Short & Sweet
Ink: Baja Breeze, Basic Grey, Basic Grey SW Marker
Cardstock: Baja Breeze, Not Quite Navy, Whisper White, Urban Garden DSP
