A Moon Baby

Aloha and surprise - I'm still here and trying to make cards!

Our nephew and his wife in Tennessee just had their second baby, a little girl. They were blessed with a little boy first. I like to tease people whenever and wherever possible, so I encourage them "the fun" doesn't really begin until after 5 or 6 kids, so keep on going!!!! And be sure to breast feed all of them, and use cloth diapers lol!!! Don't cheat and use disposables because of the landfills and such. Hah! They are bordering on loathing from hearing me anymore :D

I stamped the starry background onto the card base. Stamped Image with StazOn Black ink. Using watercolors, I swirled colors for a sky behind the focal image.Watercolor Moon and baby (I CASEd Lydia Fiedler on this part). Cut the dried panel with dies and then adhere to card. Cover the hanging star with Glossy Accents and cover the entire crescent moon with Wink of Stella clear. SHINY!!!

I will try to enter this into Kathy Racoosin's 30 day coloring challenge ♥
