A New Baby

My cousin had a baby in December. But her shower isn't until April. Gave me lots of time to make a card. I used Bashful Buttons and Bows Boo by Lacy Sunshine. I colored her using Prismacolor pencils and added Diamond Stickles to her wings. Her sleeper and bow are paper pieced. I followed the sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2. I created the rainbow background paper using my Silhouette program and used a similar pattern fill on the letters. The button flowers, leaves, butterfly and sentiment are all Silhouette cut files. I used twine in the button holes and foam dots to lift the embellies off the page.
