Baby Boy Showered with Love

Hi Crafty Friends,
I have a friend that is having her first baby and it's a BOY! We can't have the typical baby boy shower so we are having a ZOOM shower. So since I can't see her in person I wanted to make a special card. I was inspired by the Hero Arts Sketch Challenge and Hero Arts Blog Hugs At A Distance Challenge.

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: Do you know anyone who has had a baby during this crazy time?
A: Me? No, just my friend that is pregnant but she is not due until August so hopefully everything will have calmed by then.

Hero Arts Sun Showers Stamp Set
Pattern Paper Scraps
Kat Scrappiness Heart Jewels
