Monochromatic Baby Edwin

Hi girls!
 I made a card for some challenges and one is monochromatic so I chose a blue green color as it is one of my favorites that I do not get sick of.

I wanted to mimic his crown so pieces of triangular shaped card stock are in the background with stamped baby feet on it.  I used sage shadow from SU. 
The DP behind Edwin are pale cloud images and then I used a Spellbinders to make my circles.
On the left is a bow made with wrinkled ribbon and lace. I added a horse charm and It's a boy metal charm to the bow.

The inside is sage shadow ribbon and cardstock with the other 2 DP's I used.  They are scraps so they have no names on them.  You should see my scraps, 2 big drawers full and then I have alot of regular paper that I haven't even put a dent in!  I am a hoarder of patterned paper, it is hard not to buy them, they are so pretty.

I am entering this card in the following challenges.

Have a beautiful day!  It is cool finally in MN and we are having a week long breather from the hot muggy summer. Thank goodness!
