First card pic posting

I thought I would try to post my first card pic and what better than the card I made for my latest great nephew?  So, here goes, fingers crossed!
Noah Birth Card April 2011 Cropped
The stamps I’ve used are ones I’ve had for years but haven’t used much recently.
The border is a Clarity corner stamp, my favourtie of their corner stamps I own.
The teddy is from the Stick and Stamp range from Rubbadubbadoo – I don’t know if it’s still available, from a set called A Star Is Born.
I used a Kaleidacolour ink pad, Blue Breeze, for the colour.
Dots of Butterfly Trails Diamond Sparkle glitter from Hunkydory, applied using the Quickie glue pen to the border.
As neither of my printers seem to like card of any thickness, I’ve used a peel off greeting coloured with a Stazon Blue Teal ink pad.
Blue gems from my general stash, got to have a good selection of gems handy don’t we?
The base card is A5 made by folding an A4 sheet of cream hammer card, matting is with Hunkydory blue mirri - my absolute favourite shade of blue, but then again I may be biased as my blue also happens to be my favourite colour :-)
I hope you like it and appreciate all comments, after all nothing beats a fresh eye on things does it?
