My Little Stars

Hello my blogging friends!  I hope you had a fantastic weekend!

My daughter Jessica's baby shower was Saturday and this is the card I made for her.  This Mo Manning image melted my heart because it's like a little glimpse into the future of my grandson Tyton and his little brother, who should be here in a few short weeks.
I colored the image with my Copic markers and used Vintage Photo Distress Ink on the edges of all the papers.  Just a bit though, because I wanted the card to stay bright.  I chose this color scheme to match the snuggy that I made for my little sweetheart (see picture below).  I used the Stitched Wave punch by EK Success to mimic the pattern in it too.  That wavy yellow rick-rack was hand dyed by me and I have a ton of it, so it's nice to find a project to use it on.  I completely forgot to pull the star tag out of the card and get a pic of it.  Sorry about that!
