Christmassy Baby Card

Hello again,

Hope you're all keeping well. I have spent way too much time online today, hence this is just a short post, showing you a card I made for the daughter of my boss. It's a bit after Christmas now, I know, but she wanted - as she put it, roughly - a special keepsake kind of a card for her little one. I feel so honoured to have been asked to make it! 

Since I know little Saoirse is often called by her mammy "a cheeky monkey", I knew straight away what kind of image I wanted to use. And the LMMS Pudding Chester was precisely what I was looking for! Isn't he just the cutest? Since I wanted to make him a bit more girly, though, I added him eyelashes, freckles and a cute little bow. I was asked to make the card girly, but without too much of the usual pinks, etc. I tried my best with balancing the colours, and the little "monkey's" mammy was really happy with my creation!

I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the baby's name, and then for the first time played with my Xyron sticker maker - very handy! I was lucky enough, as by pure coincidence the font was not too big for the machine - gotta keep that in mind in the future! :)

 A bit of glitter and GlossyAccents was a must!

I would like to enter the card into the following challenges:
I Love Promarkers - Add a bow
QKR Stampede - Snowflakes and sparkle
Inky Impressions - Something New  (digi)
Inky Chicks - Anything goes
A Gem of a challenge - Something New (digi)

Hop you liked it, have a great Sunday evening!
