A New Baby Card

A colleague at work became a first time Dad recently.  He is an Aston Villa fan, so it wasn't too hard to come up with a colour theme for the card we all signed for him.
Using the two largest nested circle Picot dies from Claritystamp, cut a piece of white stencil card and a mat from baby blue card.
Use the Clarity Word Chain Alphabet and number stamps to add the date of birth and the names of the baby in Cornflower Blue Archival ink.
Add the New Design Club teddy bear (#141) in the centre in the same ink.
Colour the teddy using a deep red watercolour pencil blended out with a water brush and dry.
Add lilac pencil over the top to create a deeper Claret tone and blend again.
Mat the two circles of card together. Using various Wee Folk and Wee Sports stamps, add characters around the edges of an 8” x 8” white card blank in Cornflower Blue, Thistle and Watering Can archival ink.
To finish, add the circular topper to the card.
