Baby Blanket

It's Thursday and time for another challenge at Lili Of The Valley. This week we have a great sketch for you to follow and are being sponsored by The Ribbon Girl who has donated a fantastic prize for one lucky winner. Don't forget though, to be eligible for the prize you MUST use an LOTV image on your project.

I was asked to make this card by the grandmother as they were expecting the baby on the 18th February. When I gave her the card this morning she said the timing was perfect as the baby had been born at 2am today, obviously couldn't wait to see the card ha! ha! Welcome to the world little Alfie Charles!

The main image has been coloured with Promarkers and chalk and I have added flock to his hat and blanket for texture. I then layered it using several Nesties. I have done the sentiments in a similar way. I have used a border punch on some of the panels to add a bit of interest. To finish I have added some die cut flowers and placed roses in the centres. Hope you like it, thanks for looking.
