New Baby

Hi everyone and Happy Tuesday :)  As those of you who have followed me for a while now know, my husband and I welcomed our first baby, a sweet, amazing baby boy, into the world back in August.  I haven't had too much time to craft lately with the new baby and work and everything, but I did have time to put this card together for a dear friend of mine who is expecting a baby girl later this month. 

This gorgeous image is from one of my favorite digi stamp stores, Saturated Canary.  She is called New Baby and I just love her.  What I have been doing lately when I get a little bit of free time is practicing on my copic marker coloring.  I've been watching tutorials online and studying peoples blogs and working really hard to improve.  I'm really happy with how this one turned out. I still have a ways to go, but I think I'm getting there :)  Here are the copics I used:

Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11
Hair: E31, E35, E57, E59
Blanket and shirt: R81, R83, R85, R59
Blue skirt: B91, B93, B97, B99
Shadow: W2, W4, W6

I created my card base out of SU cardstock.  The paper is from Kaisercraft and is called Gypsy Sisters (it is gorgeous!).  The border and the tag also came from this paper pack.  The embellishment in the corner is a Memory Box die (Madera Corner).  I purchased the paper and the Memory Box die from Susana's Custom Art and Card Design (SCACD).  I added a bow, pearls, and roses from Wild Orchid Crafts for some finishing touches.  What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  I'm not sure when I'll be back yet but I'm hoping to be back soon with some Christmas cards.  I promise I will share pictures of our new little man soon (if you follow me on Facebook, there are some pics there, but I will post here too soon).  Have a wonderful day everyone!  Hugs!
