Baby Ellie

Good morning 🙂  I had some vacation time left over from last year, so decided that it was a great time, with it being sooo cold here, to take a 4 day weekend.  Lot’s of time to play!!  My stack of colored images was getting a bit high, so I figured it was time to get some of them onto cards!!! I always seem to get orders for baby cards…you know, “I need it RIGHT AWAY”   It’s not like people are expecting their child for months beforehand, and in most cases, even know the gender of the baby!!  So, I decided I better get my stock of baby cards built up again, particularly the girly ones.  I saw this image at Whimsy Stamps, and just had to have it!!!  Baby Ellie is just beyond cute, and so perfect for a new baby card!  She is colored with my Prismacolor pencils, then cut out with a die from Xyron (I think).  I found the piece of pink polka dot paper, but in my thousands and thousands of sheets, I just couldn’t find a paper that went well with the dots and the image.  So, I made my own, on my computer 😀  I followed this sketch, from Tuesday Morning Sketches, for the layout.

I added a border of liquid pearls to the polka dot part, to give it some extra definition, then added a few dots to the edge of the image and to the corners for a bit of an accent 🙂

I’d like to enter this in the following:
