Welcome Baby

This card is for my friend Marion, who has been longing for grandchildren ever since I met her:).  Josh was born 5 1/2 weeks early and all is going well, so this is for a Granny who I'm sure would like to add many more grandchildren to go with Josh! 

I used the totally adorable Babes in Dreamland image from Phindy's Place, colouring with Copics.  The sketch that I used is from this week's Midnight Madness Challenge, I've turned it on its side.  The sentiment is a Personal Impressions clear stamp, the DP is Basic Grey and I've added lots and lots of punched flowers from my Woodware punch, as well as some rosebuds that came from Quixotic Paperie.  I'm also entering my card for a new challenge:  the Wild Orchid Challenge, which is "Say it with Flowers", a very appropriate theme as Wild Orchid sell the most delicious flower embellishments.  There are little pearls in the centres of my flowers and a few leaves punched from the DP too.


  1. I have that image and still haven't used it! You have inspired me to get it out and give it a go!
    Gorgeous card!

  2. my gosh, Anne! this card is so adorable! I love that image and how you colored it so differently. I work in adoption, so this would be a perfect imag (gotta get me one of those stamps)
