New Baby Girl

I made a bit of a mistake when I chose this image for a new baby card as it was the first time I'd used this Tilda and I didn't realise that she had holly in her hair until I started colouring her in.  But I put a bit of gold marker pen to give her hair some golden highlights has sufficiently hidden the christmassy holly.  I wanted to use this image as I wanted Tilda to 'hold' a banner of QuicKuts letters saying 'baby girl' which I stuck to a strip of curved cut paper bent over at the ends to look like a banner.  The strip of paper I used doesn't come out clearly in the picture, but overall it is not too bad for something that started out as a mistake!!!




I've been inspired by the following:
Happy Crafting.
