Sweet Baby Girl

Here I am again with another post, I'm on a roll these past few days, or maybe it's just I'm ignoring the chores! LOL. I was flicking through some older pics and realised I didn't post this lil' card. I made it for my beautiful neice, who is about to turn 6 months old in a few days. So I thought I'd share this with you today.

P1110012

I made this card in haste to go along with some parcels I was sending. So I kept it really simple and let the pretty papers and lovely image be the feature. I've very delicately coloured the image with my Promarkers and then added the sentiment to the inside of the card. I don't recall where the stunning paper is from, but it had such a soft romantic feel to it, I thought it was perfect for a new baby card. The image is from Just Inklined, so delicate and sweet, I really love it!

Here's the arty shot...

Here's the inside with the sentiment, stamped in soft pink ink...

That's all for today, just a quick post with a sweet forgotten card. Was a busy and stressful time with our shift back to New Zealand looming, so everything was done in haste those days. I'm glad to have found the pic in my file and be able to post it today, I think it deserves it's day in the Sun. 

Thanks for stopping in today. Love it when you visit. Hugs from 'down under', Wends xxx

Very sweet but I can't seem to see your dictionary definition anywhere, is it "under the covers" too? BJ

Very sweet. Don't forget "bow" in your list of "B's"! Great job. Thanks for playing along at Eclectic Ellapu.
