   Later this month is my youngest grandson's first birthday, so although I have used pink I think the addition of grey means I can get away with it for a boy! Anyway, it's one of my favourite colour combinations.
   For this card salmon pink card was embossed using a Beatrix Potter folder from Crafter's Companion and layered onto grey card. Pink and grey ribbons were wrapped round the left hand side of this before attaching to the white base card. A grey bow was added and pink card candi were glued to the top and bottom of the card.
   Pale pink card was embossed using a Darice 'sayings' folder, again from Crafter's Companion, matted onto grey card and fixed to the card with foam pads.
   The image is from a Wild Rose Studio stamp called 'Bella with mum', which I think is appropriate for a one year old! This I coloured with Promarkers. Having cut it out I pierced around the edges before layering it onto grey card and attaching to the card.
   Finally glitter was added to the 's' of 'smile'.
