Baby Henry William


My friend has been expecting her first grandchild to make an appearance in February. Her daughter has had a rough time, with miscarriages and IVF. Suddenly she found herself pregnant without IVF but was then really sick for ages. A couple of weeks late but baby Henry arrived and all is well. I made my card ahead of time in neutral and lemon. My friend chose this LOTV image but as she wanted an 8 x 8 personalised card, and I don't sell that size baby card,  I couldn't make it it until baby arrived. I coloured the image in pink and blue and then when I got the call set to making this card.

Medium - Copics and Promarkers ( as I made this before I changed pens)
Papers - Tim Holtz shabby vintage
