It's gonna be a girl!
When I saw this new image at A Day for Daisies I knew I had to get it and make a card for my daughters' boss. I've known her since she was a teenager and she's been so good to my daughter. She's expecting her first child, a girl. She's a pretty red head so this card was a challenge. I'm terrible at hair and I've never attempted red before. I looked at tons of YT videos for coloring red hair and had NONE of the color combinations they used so I had to invent my own.
I saw some really cute baby paper on a card on Dorcas's blog and was really surprised when I found the same paper pad at Michael's. I don't do too many baby cards so I guess I just kept overlooking this pad. It's from DCWV and I used three of the patterned papers combined with some matching Bazzill. The polka dot mat was punched with a MS edge set and I stitched some DMC embroidery floss through the holes for a little extra color. Hope you like the card.
I'd like to enter it into the following challenges:
A Day For Daisies--oh baby
Bearly Mine--beautiful babies
Outlawz Greeting card challenge--Mother's Day or girl card or creation + sentiment
