Welcome Baby Brother

Hi there! Happy Wednesday!  Hope your week got off to a great start!  It's always nice having a "short" week!  I've got a ton to do today, so I'm popping in early to share a card I made for a few challenges I enjoy doing. I haven't had much time lately for non-DT work, so I'm happy to have gotten this one done.

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are SU Pretty in Pink and the patterned papers are from the Echo Park Bundle of Joy 6x6 pad.  The adorable image is Polly's Little Prayer by Elisabeth Bell for Sweet Pea Stamps.  I stamped her on Make it Colour Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  I added a bit of Stickles to her nightgown and headband for some sparkle.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  A triple-loop seam binding bow and a bunch of Wild Orchid Crafts flowers finished my girly card.

Here is a close-up of the image:

Thanks for stopping by!  I'l be by to visit your blogs in between all my appointments today.

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
