Monochromatic Baby Card

I made this card for a sweet newborn baby boy, and I'm entering it in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge which is "monochromatic." I made baby blocks to spell out his initials by using some of those alphabet punch-outs I bought years ago for scrapbooking. The added Kaiser pearls indicate the baby's birth date too. The background was done with a Sizzix Curlique ef, and the border was done with a SNSS die with some blue satin ribbon woven through it. The sentiment was done with a dollar store stamp in matching ink.

That's it for now, but have yourself a fine day and thanks for stopping by!

This is just the sweetest card.
The embossing is fab and the idea tio use the baby;s initials is brilliant.
I would have never guessed that was a dollar store stamp for the sentiment...It looks fabulous.
