Welcome Baby



Hello everyone!  Happy Monday!  It's sunny and glorious out today here is NC... I'm ready for some warmer weather!!!

I made this card for Mojo 122 and for this week's OCC... a color challenge to use blue and green.  This sketch was so fun to work with!  I used the newly released set Noah's Ark from Our Daily Bread designs for my main image and sentiment.  The image is stamped on watercolor paper and watercolored with inks.  The sentiment is stamped directly on the designer paper with Not Quite Navy.  The dp is Baby Blue Scroll from Paper Adventures.  There is a strip of paper ribbon from K&Co (the waves)... and blue gemstones from Reflections.  I painted Shimmerz on the dove and the water.... hope you can see a little shimmer.  IRL it really shimmers.  Thanks for looking and have a blessed day!

This is wonderful, Grace! I love the color and the embossing. The dew drops are perfect and I like the out of the box (circle, lol) treatment of the ark.
