One, two, three, all together - aaahhhhh...

Our friends just had a baby boy and luckily (hehee) I had a perfect image to fit the bill! It's from Phindy and it's called Contentment (it's also available in African-American version). I love the beautiful serene air of the drawing and the feel that you are witnessing a beautiful private moment between mother and the baby.

Colouring was mainly done with Prismacolour pencils to keep the soft feel, I only laid some base (lazy me) with Copics.

Papers are from MME, lace is from my stash and the sentiments are from Whiff of Joy. The border punch I used is I THINK from Woodware.
Nestabilities dies were used to make flowers, image matting and the label inside. Shadow-stamped image inside is from Joanna Sheen.

Remember, there's still plenty of time to enter Phindy's Place second challenge - Use Ribbon. You could win yourself some gorgeous artwork! :)

I would like to enter that card into following challenges:

Digital Tuesday - flowers

Dare u 2 Digi Stamp - flowers

Pile It On - Spring (to me flowers and new life always personify spring time!)

Meljens Place - For the little ones

Sundays With Crissy - Make it a Combo

Thanks for looking and happy crafting!
