The Alley Way Stamps - New Baby Card

Hi ya! Easter is almost here! Are you ready for the bunny's visit?
 I have a quick card to share today, featuring some newer stamps (in my collection!) 
I started pulling out all my The Alley Way Stamps, I chose to use the boat from Kid N Caboodle and Jibber Jabber, I inked up the boat, and stamped it four times, once on X-press it Blender card, again on patterned papers, from Echo Park, All about a Boy, MME, and Echo Park Dots and Stripes, before trimming out the pieces I wanted to use, I attached double sided tape to the back, trimmed them out, and peeled the backing off and attached them to my blender card section, which I'd coloured up using my Spectrum Noirs. The background paper I've used is a trimmed down piece of Echo Park Dots and Stripes, which of course has a bunch off doodling around the edges (I can't help myself!) The sentiment is stamped in plain black ink, and the card made up, using more patterned paper from All About a Boy 6x6 paper pad, cut out with a scallop border die.
Here is the close up - 
I am entering this into three challenges, the first is the Inspiration pic from TAWS blog, next up is the sketch from Mojo Monday, and finally the Anything goes challenge at Simon Says
My shop will be offline from next weekend, as I will be out of action for a couple of weeks, so if there is anything you'd like to get your hands on any of my cards, now is the time to take a peek!
