Time to Eat!!

Well today I made a baby card. Last night I chose the House Mouse stamp and the papers and decided on the sketch I would use. Today I coloured the image with Prismacolour pencils. I'm going to have allow more room when stamping my images ├žause there wasn't enough cardstock to use the oval nestie that I had in mind. So of course that changed the sketch immediately. Anyway, here is the card. I'm totally happy with it. Maybe you are thinking that the picture is very pale and washed out, but the papers I used are like that, Melissa Frances, very pale pastels. The background dp has little white lambs and pale lemon stars and moons scattered on it. I think by adding the touch of purple it lifts the card. The safety pin, buttons and lace are all from my stash.
This card isn't for any particular gender hence the green and yellow bibs.
Thanks for looking and taking the time to comment on my blog.
