It's a girl!

So....... I don't make baby cards.   Well, at least I haven't,  until now!  LOL.  Karen's daughter is having a baby girl!  Karen requested a baby card, it is.  Love this image and sentiment.   How very true.

The image and sentiment are both from Create with TLC.  Paulette does such an amazing jjob with digital word art and images.  Lately, those images have been mostly vintage, this one being no exception.  While you can go to her site to purchase, she also posts multiple freebies every day. 
Image:  Create with TLC
Sentiment:  Create with TLC
Sentiment inside:  Our Craft Lounge
Cardstock:  Bazzill
DP:  Sorry, from my stash
Ribbon:  Michaels
Border Stamp:  EK success
Coloring:  Copics
Inking:  Memento inks
The main image is colored and then covered with my embossing pen and ranger inks clear embossing powder.  This lets me sponge the background with all those wonderful colors without messing up the color of the image. 

This card is entered in the following challenges:
Digital Tuesday Challenge:  Use from your stash, use a digital image
Cute Card Thursday:  Anything goes
Stamp Something:  Anything as long as it's digital
The Sisterhood of Crafters:  Birthday card (literally!)
Pattie's Creations:  Birthday Card
My Partner in Crafting Crime:  Marker Madness-Use your markers
Little Red Wagon:  Do it in Threes (I used 3 different card stocks. sponged the background with 3 colors)
