Baby Dreams

Good afternoon, it was gorgeous and sunny and I am hoping that there will be more of the same tomorrow. I had a baby shower to attend this afternoon and I thought that I would pop by and share the card that I made to welcome the new little one. I have a few showers to attend over the next few weeks so there are sure to be a few more baby cards to follow.

This card came about as a bit of a happy accident. I was following an old sketch attempting to make a background for another image that I had coloured but when I had the card base all assembled, the image that I had did not fit well so I decided that the colours of these gorgeous Marjolaine papers from Basic Grey would be fitting for the baby card that I required.

Here is a close up of the gorgeous LOTV image that I coloured to match the card base.

And a shot of the inside congratulations message as well. I am not in the habit of completing the inside of the card at the same time but I really love the look I achieved by using the scraps of papers to finish off the inside. I think that I might need to try to do this more often.

I hope that you have a great weekend. Thanks for stopping by. I hope you will visit again tomorrow as I have another card almost ready to share.

This card will be entered into the following challenges:
