Dreamy Baby

As this posts, I am winging my way to Cuba for a week.  I am going with two ladies from the neighbourhood for a week of sun and relaxation on the island of Cayo Largo, which sits in the Caribbean Sea.  I sure hope my husband manages without me :)

Today the challenge at Phindy's Friday Challenges is to make a card using this sketch.

We have friends that are going to be first-time Grandparents in February so I thought I better get a card ready to go with a gift or two that we will be giving to the new parents.  Since they don't know whether they are having a boy or a girl, I had to make a card that could be used for either and I chose this dreamy baby and a pale cream palette.

Image:  Counting Sheep (Phindy's Place)
Sentiment:  Computer Generated
Card Stock:  Recollections
Paper:  Shabby Princess
Colouring Medium:  Pencil Crayons (Prismacolor) with OMS (Taltine)
Tools & Embellishments:  Old Paper Distress Ink (Ranger), Flowers (Wild Orchid Crafts), Lace (My Stash), George & Basic Shapes Cartridge (Cricut), Pearl Strand (Michaels)
