I've got a new NEPHEW!! :)

When we got the news last night that my SIL had her baby, I just had to throw together a cute little card to bring to them in the hospital. They didn't know if it was a boy or a girl, so I made a unisex card for her shower, but needed a gender-specific card for the actual arrival! So, I took a look at some of the challenges available to me and came up with this!
I'm entering this in the following challenges:
Cooking with Cricut: Use a Lion or Lamb
DieCuttin' Divas: Use a Baby animal cut
My Craft Spot: Tie a Bow
Cards for Men: Embossing

Cricut Cartridges: B is for Boy, Sugar and Spice, New Arrival
Cardstock: Stampin' Up!
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder: Swiss Dots
Queen & Co Green Rhinestones
Pebbles Chalk
Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Walnut Stain
Sakura White Gelly Roll Pen
Ribbon, button, and embroidery floss from my stash

Congratulations on your new little nephew!! How exciting! I think it's wonderful that they kept the gender a surprise. (I did that with my children too.)
What a great card! That lion is adorable and is perfect for a boy card.
