Welcome Makaio - HSI #11

Hello Everyone and Happy Monday,

You guessed it, it is time for Heart Song Inspirations weekly challenge http://heartsonginspirations.blogspot.com. Today's challenge was to make a card using an animal image or pleated ribbon or paper. Leah the owner of Heart Song Designs has some exciting events happening in her life. She is in Ethiopia adopting a son that she and her family had to jump through hoops to do. As a surprise to her the design team at Heart Song decided to do baby cards to welcome her new bundle of joy Makaio. We hope that you all will join us in welcoming him not only to Leah's family but to America as well.




For my card I used Heart Song Designs www.heartsongdesignsshop.com Bella and Baby image. I colored the image with my brand new Prisma colored pencils. I also used my sentiment from Stampin Up's Welcome Little one which I used Brilliance Sky Blue ink pad. The base of my card is a baby blue cardstock which I layered with Paper Studio Baby Farm Animals design paper. I know I am mixing my animals but I couldn't resist the paper it was so cute. I layered my image and sentiment on a slate blue and sage green cardstock. I used a baby blue ribbon in which I pleated per the challenge. I really enjoyed making this card. I hope you enjoyed the card. Thanks for stopping by and please come again and become a follower. Have a blessed day!

Thanks
Debbie

Very sweet card, Debbie. I really like the look of the animals on the paper in the background, mixed or not. Your ribbon pleating is perfect -- I can never get that right. Leah is sure to appreciate this!
