We want to see a card for a child at The Paper Shelter

Good morning all

Greetings from sunny Florida

I've scheduled all my posts while I'm away as I can't always keep an eye on things and we're going up to Orlando for the night to see James Taylor at the Amway Arena (really looking forward to it)  so I won't be around at all to check it out -  so hopefully you're reading this!!  

Today's card is for the new challenge at 

our challenge this week is 

A Card for a Child

I decided to go with a new baby card - I came across one of the older images in

The Paper Shelter's digi shop

  when I was deciding what to make - I hadn't seen it before and though it was just so cute
Called Sweet Dreams -  it's available here

as always there are great prizes up for grabs
 - even better prizes if you use an image from TPS!

I have to say I was very undecided about how to tackle this and started off with just the image coloured on  the white background - but I knew I had to go for it and colour it dark blue for the night sky - I have to say it was pretty scary! -I used 3 shades of blue B95, B93 and B91 and I actually quite like (and was relieved) how it turned out.  It's such a lovely image for a card for a baby - quite simple really but with gorgeous details.  It "felt" better as a baby boy card - just because the sky  background is blue but I think it would work equally well for a baby girl with the right papers.  The colours look darker in this photograph - the curse of the winter months! - the card looks a lot more yellow than it is - its actually a dark cream and rather pretty : )

This is what I did...

Image - sweet dreams from TPS
Coloured with copics and prismacolor pencils
Card - Bazzill Basics
Papers - LOTV
Sentiment - produced in word
Flowers - WOC
Ribbon - Carnmeal cottage
Circle dies - Spellbinders
leaf punch - Martha Stewart
