Baby, is it a boy or a girl

I got this fab LOTV stamp for Christmas and decided as there are a few 'new' challenges I'd have a play. I actually don't know anyone having a baby at the moment but I can guarantee that when I do I never have the right card made ready always the opposite sex, so for a change I decided to do a generic card and then if I need a card for an unexpected occasion I only have to add the right sex sentiment and hey presto a boy or girl baby card.Well that's the plan anyway.

I coloured my image in Promarkers using almond and putty for the baby grow and blanket. I added sparkle with sakura glitter pen and used a mix of white papers from my scraps box. I actually am quite pleased with how it turned out. I did think about using greys so my baby was all dressed in white but decided it might look a bit like a dingy grey baby grow and not a crisp white one so that might be a future experiment.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

Prairie Fairy friday-new beginnings
Ellephantastic-new beginnings
LOTV-new beginnings
Alphabet challenge-i for infants
Secret saturday craft challenge-buttons and bows
friday sketches-layout
