It's a boy!

Hi there!

Only a few hours left to enter this week's Muse card challenge, where Michele has provided a fabulous bright and bold inspiration card!

The moment I saw her card with the word 'joy' I knew what I wanted to create. Just love a moment like that!



I think the way Michele's card inspired me is obvious, but here it is:

1) Solid colored card base.
2) Sentiment inspired - but instead of repeating the word, I used it only once, and focused on the use       of negative space and replacing the 'o' with an image.
3) Embellished with ♥♥♥

Die cutting done with my Silhouette.
I think the baby boy comes from an online coloring book... not sure ;)
He was colored with Promarkers, and I paper pieced his bib.


Michele's inspiration
                                           


I am linking this to Stamplorations hop for Deepti who's baby boy was born on the 29th of January!
Congratulations Deepti... may he really be a bundle of joy!

Thanks for visiting me today!
