Sweet Baby

I made this card last night for a mum who takes her daughter to the same Rhythm Time class as my DD2. We've met up once or twice for playdates outside of class and she's just recently started coming back to class after having her second child (another girl) in January:
 
 
I thought it'd be nice to give her a little something but didn't want to do a traditional "congratulations/new baby" card as the actual event was a couple of months ago now! :lol: So I thought this A Day For Daisies dig stamp of a mum cuddling her baby would be perfect for a card welcoming her to the "mum to two girls" club! :lol:
 
I chose some gorgeous floral papers in spring colours (more magazine freebies) and used my Promarkers (my replacement Putty Promarker has arrived - yay!) to colour the image to match the papers:
 
 
I layered the papers and added a doily and cut around the image to layer it over the doily. I added a "Sweet Baby" sentiment (Stampin' Up! Itty Bitty Banners stamp and matching Framelit) and finished things off with some pretty flowers...
 
 
..and a little butterfly charm:
 
 
Unfortunately, I didn't get to give the card to its intended recipient this morning, as DD2 woke up with a bit of a temperature and feeling a bit under the weather and clingy, so we didn't go to her Rhythm Time class. Ah well, it will have to wait till next week. :)
