I begin to love this little creature…

I’m sharing a card I made for a colleague heading off to have her baby shortly featuring a sweet pregnancy image, Mother To Be 1, from Mo’s Digital Pencil.

My card follows the current sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches.  I had to flip the sketch as I needed a vertical oval to fit my image so I shifted the placement of the sentiment to match.

Baby stuff always makes me think of gingham and there was lots of it in the Double “D” inspiration image.  I was wondering how to incorporate that into my card until I saw the current theme at Moving Along with the Times of no designer paper.  Got out my trusty Tim Holtz stamp and the lovely and baby soft Fran-tage and voilà one lovely ginghamy background.

As Ive created my own background I am also entering this in the challenge over at The Sisterhood of Crafters.  Thanks for the tip, Darlene!

To finish off my card I added in a sweet teddy bear button and an appropriate sentiment from Tim’s Small Talk stickers.  I cut the saying in half and cut in notches on the ends before inking with blue and adhering to my card.

Over at Crafty Musketeers they are looking for projects to do with babies, which mine certainly is so I’m linking up my card there.  As I also have a Mo image I am entering my card in the current challenge at DP2.
