Welcome Baby

Hello 🙂 I was asked to make a special card for my friend’s first granddaughter, Josie. I knew right away which image I wanted to use for this, Fairy Sleepy, from Mo’s Digital Pencil. I colored this little sweetie up with my Copics, then added some clear shimmer to the wings, and inked the background. Some white dots on the background with a Posca pen gave the impression of sparkle.

I dug around in my alarmingly big stash of papers to find just the right prints to go with the image. I chose some from a collection that I got as a freebie in a magazine…..probably about 10 years ago!! Lol. I added some stitching with a fine point pen on the dotted print, to mirror the stitching in the stripes. After matting and layering the pieces up, I carefully edged the striped piece with some pretty trim. I popped the image up with some foam dots. I found some flowers in my stash that coordinated with the color scheme so well you’d think I had planned it (I didn’t!). I die cut some leaves for this arrangement and tucked them in after lightly inking their edges. I personalized the welcome by printing it on my computer, then die cut and inked it before popping it on some foam dots as well 🙂

I’d like to enter this in the following:
