Bambino in Blue

Evening all! well been a busy day today, got all the housework done top to bottom and washing included!  Had an  e-mail from a friend asking for an A4 baby card with Bambino, had a job interview and I got the job, finish the card, family taken for dinner, home and at nearly 10pm I still have both girls awake... Nancy is teething and Amelia just being... well Amelia! 

I was so excited when I read the e-mail this morning... my friend and I discussed what she wanted a few weeks ago and we (well I) was on hold until the baby arrived... and yes she had a boy!!! 


How I LOVE the detail in this stamp, no matter how big or small you print it, he/she still looks perfect.  So peaceful and adorable.... 


My friend had said that as a number of people needed to sign this card that she would like it A4, now I have in the past done quite simple A4 cards, so this one was a bit harder as I didn't know how big to print the image.  
I printed Bambino at about 6 1/2'' long! 


I used some gingham Digital paper I have in an odds and bits file on my computer, reduced the opacity to 70% and added a verse on the inside. Each piece of paper had a length of lace running along the bottom of the page just to soften the edges! 


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges;

A Gem Of A Challenge - Pastel Colours
Catch The Bug - Anything goes
Bunny Zoes Crafts - Celebrations (New Baby)
Creative Monday - Anything Goes
Make It Monday - Anything Goes

Thanks fro stopping by and hope to see you again soon! 

Hugs
