Simply Gingham

One of the crafty ladies in our group just became a Grandmother for the first time. She is excited and over the moon.  I wanted to send a card, but was having a hard time since I have no obvious baby stamps or sentiments.  WPlus9's Unforgettable provided the images, and my laptop provided the sentiment.

Coloring was done with copics, the oval's background was inked with Clarity Brushes and Simon Says Stamp inks in Green Leaf and Blue Jay.  The Balloon was colored with copics and then overlaid with Spectrum Sparkle pen in blue and glossy accents for some dimension. The soft gingham paper was a left over piece from a stamp kit.

I am entering this to Double D Challenges,  Simply Gingham is the theme.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
