The Stork is Coming!

Hello bloggers,

Wow! My second post already!  I am on a roll, though my husband would probably substitute the word addicted.  I'm afraid my cat would agree with him if she could speak English.  I think they are planning an intervention right now. Anyway, on to far more interesting matters...

Today I have a card to share that I have created for the Scrapbooker's Paradise Playing in Paradise Challenge.  I believe this is a new challenge in blog land, making its debut this week.  To kick things off, we were challenged to create a project in their colours - green, gold (yellow) and a touch of burgundy.  As there are new babies on their way in my family, I decided these would be nice gender neutral colors to make a card to welcome a new little one.  I think it ended up being a little masculine, so hopefully one of the babies is a boy.




I used vanilla cardstock for the base and the papers are from DCWV's Nana's Nursery Baby Boy stack.  The adorable image is a Mo Manning design from Stampavie.  I have colored it using watercolor pencils.  The sentiment, which I thought was perfect for the image is from Close to My Heart.  The buttons are from Stampin' Up, the ribbon is from a local scrapbook store (I do not remember the maker), and the edge punch is from Martha Stewart.  Hope you like it!

Good luck to all the gals who played along!
