Some Odd Girl - New Baby


Hi guys!
I have a new baby card to share today! One of the girls I work with had a beautiful little bundle of joy yesterday, they named her Summer! I wanted to make a special card to take to work, for everyone to sign, to congratulate her and her partner on their new addition... So, here it is -
As soon as I knew she'd had the baby, I went looking for a specific digi stamp, I knew I'd seen in the Some Odd Girl Shop... I found Baby Snuggle Kaylee, and knew she'd be perfect for the card that was floating in my head!
I printed her out on some plain white cardstock, and coloured her up using my Spectrum Noir Markers. I tried to make her look as much like my work mate as possible... I don't know if it worked though.... I then built my card... I used scrap pieces of patterned paper, mostly from My Minds Eye, and die-cut a bunch of Hexagons (MFT Die-Namic) and doodled around the edges before layering them on to Kraft card. I embossed some more white card, and layered up my hexagons. The sentiment is from SU! and was die-cut using my favourite banner die. The "button" is just a circle die cut from some glitter cardstock, with two holes  punched into it, and twine tied through. 
Here is the close up -
