The Greeting Farm - New Baby Card

Hi Hi! Two posts in one day! Are you shocked? Scroll down to see my Stamp Spot Design Team post, alternatively, click here.... Anyway, I made this card the other night while crafting with my bestie Annmaree, just so you all know, she and I live 6hrs away from each other, but every week, we get online together, at the same time and craft and chat... granted, most nights we only make one or two cards but, it is a highlight of my week....
Ok, so I started with this adorable pregnant lady from The Greeting Farm, Mom and Dad set it was the first TGF image I bought... I coloured her in using my Spectrum Noir Markers and fussy cut her out... I then tried to find papers to match.... If you guys know me, you know Purple isn't my colour, at all! I went through my stash of scraps, and came across this purple paper from My Minds Eye and some blue from KaiserCraft. I stuck them together, did some faux stitching and then looped my ribbon around it and tied a bow... The sentiment is from My Minds Eye, and I think it makes a great sentiment for someone expecting :) I layered the whole shebang on to Kraft card stock and called it done :)
I am entering this into three challenges, the Anyone for Anya? challenge is stitching, the Farm Fresh Friday Challenge is to use something 'old' I used papers from my offcuts as well as my first owned TGF image, and last but not least is the Tuesday Morning Sketches Challenge #149
