A New Bundle of Joy

 I meant to share this card a while ago but never got around to it, so as I haven't shared anything for ages, I thought I would take the opportunity as it fits a few challenges out there.

It made for a work colleague of my OH and his partner, who is also my ex neighbours son and a close friend of my son.

I used a digi from Lili of the Valley called Clouds and some NitWits digital paper. I didn't want it to be too pretty pink so went with a bolder choice for the stripes. 
After colouring the printed panel with Copic markers, I added the die cut sentiment (STAMPlorations) which I coloured with marker to match the DP and stamped the greeting, an old one from Molly Bloom.
To give it a bit more dimension, I printed off the image again, this time onto copy paper, fussy cut the clouds, shaped them with a ball tool and added them over the original with foam tape.
Rather than cut the edges of the coloured panel, I cut some strips of matching card and die cut a scalloped edge, added some more Copic coloured strips in the same pink and butted these against the central panel over the top of the DP which I glued to an A5 base card.

Have a great rest of your weekend.
