Bundle of Joy

Hush, Little GirlI have loved this image by Mo Manning since day one, and finally had a chance to use it. I colored ‘Hush’ with my Spectrum Noirs, keeping the colors quite subdued. I wanted to do an old fashioned looking card, using minimal colors. I punched a border around the taupe mat for the image, found some matching ribbon, and placed it all on an embossed white background, accented with pearls. Some pretty pink roses, some little white blossoms (that I layered up after inking the edges and adding a pearl center), a few pearl sprays and some leaves give a little ‘nest’ for the baby to sleep on. I cut the banner with my Cricut, stamped a sentiment, and added a few more flowers. Loving how this turned out! :)
