Baby boy

I was up at the crack of dawn today so when I saw the new challenge over at Meljen's I knew just what to make. Someone asked me to make a card for a baby boy, but not all pale and insipid? Use colour I was told, so here it is.


Image from Meljens called Mamma Whale, coloured with Promarkers
Provo D'vine swirls emb folder
Pink Petticoat sentiment
Gems and ribbon from stash
