Make The Cards Challenge - Congratulations

Welcome back friends!

It's time for a new challenge over on  Make The Cards Challenge
Today's challenge is:

Make the Card Challenge #3 - Theme

We are thrilled to have Brandi Mahon as a Guest Designer on the blog today.  Be sure to pop over and check out her amazing design as well as the designs by our very talened design team. 

We are expecting our second GREAT Grandson in April so this card will be used for one of his many gifts LOL.  First Great Grandson (Charlie) will be 19 months when his cousin (Landon) shows up on the scene so I'm sure in time, those two little guys will become great buddies being that close in age.

Here's what I've used in the construction of today's card.  The background paper is very, very old and I have no clue where it came from but the cute dies used are as follows:

Frantic Stamper 'Gladys the Giraffe' (FRA-DIE-10451)

Sue Wilson 'It's A Boy' (CED 10022)

Frantic Stamper 'Layered Congrats' (FRA-DIE-10625)

Frantic Stamper - Dies - Layered Congrats & Block Congratulations

Yvonne Creations 'Train' (#10091)
