New Baby!

A colleague of mine just found out she is having her first baby.  I thought this A Day for Daisies image called Sleeping Flower would be perfect to send to her.  This image has been printed and sitting in my collection since 2014 and never colored up!! (Yikes!)  Needless to say, I was thrilled to be able to pull it out for today's post.

I wanted everything to be gender neutral, yet very soft and baby-like.  I am so happy with the results.  My colors are usually pretty bold, so this took a little more thought with my marker choice.  I started with the patterned papers and let that be my palette.

I used Muse Challenge 176 for my card design.
August starts a new challenge format for us at ADFD.  We'll be having a monthly challenge instead of bi-weekly and throughout the month each of the DT members will be posting cards that feature one of Tammy's beautiful illustrations in the shop.  My first post is next week - so stop back!!

Challenges Entered:
As You Like it 7/28/ - Favorite Papers and why  (I love small prints, especially flowers.  As in this card they offer a gorgeous palette choice to color from and compliment the image without taking over.)  Gingham and polka dots are a close second!!
Aud Sentiments #160 /- AG + sentiment
4 CC #309- Favorite Designer/ - A Day for Daisies
