A New Baby!



New Beginning are always exciting especially when it's a new baby!  Tomorrow the family is gathering for a baby shower for my niece who is expecting her new little boy in February.  I thought this image by Deidre Mosher Designs would be perfect to make a card to go with my shower gift .  I colored the image with Copics and paper pieced the maternity top.  I incorporated some new dies -- Spellbinders Wonky Reckangles and a Die-Namics Fishtail Flag -- into my design; embellishments include pearls and daisy buttons.

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
Card Making Mamas -- Anything Goes
CCEE Stampers Challenge CCEE1302 -- New Toys ( i used new wonky rectangle dies and a new fishtail flag die.)

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and thanks so much for stopping by!

  15. Just the best card for a 'mother-to-be', love the minimal use of colour and and that you you kept the range to just blue and yellow. Really love this card Pat. I have a niece expecting anytime around the 17th of Jan. Love how my family keeps on expanding, happy times!
