Congratulations!

It's challenge time again at Sister Act Challenge, and this week we are using an image from a gorgeous collection by Milkcoffee! There are so many cute digis to choose from, from every occasion.

I chose this image because it was perfect timing for a baby shower that I was attending.  I used a sketch from Pagemaps (March 2013)

I coloured this image with lots of pink because the mummy to be is having a little girl in 3 weeks!  Since she already has a handsome little man, I thought flowers, pink and bling was the order of the day!  I added a flower brad to the girl's hair and then adorned it with a tiny little piece of bling, then I added one to her slipper.  I didn't want the entire card to be pink so I threw in a bit of colour, added some scallops and a sticker border.
Would you like to see what went with the card?  Okay, here she is:
This is a sweet little baby diaper girl that I created for the baby shower.  This entire baby can be used for the baby once she has arrived.  She's made from 27 newborn nappies, a totally soft and snuggly onesie, a pair of pink mittens, a pair of sunglasses, a cute little hat, a dummy and a little rattle bear.  I always manage to surprise people when I take these babies places cause they look so real when they're wrapped up in a light blanket (as she was today cause it was raining).  Sophia carried her in to the baby shower and got all sorts of looks as she jostled the baby around and tried to stand it on it's head!  I love getting photos back from customers and friends of their new babies actually wearing the clothes! I can't wait for this new precious gift to arrive!!
