New Beginnings

Good afternoon everyone, what a week...hope the next months slow down a little as this one is going far too quickly lol!!  Firstly I would just like to welcome my new followers, and hope everyone has had a great New Year...Well on to my card for today, my neighbour and colleague has just had a new baby boy.  So my card today is all about "New Beginnings" I chose a Mo Manning image..isn't he gorgeous, but I had my problems, he's been coloured in more than once, as I struggle with skin and I wanted to do it with my prisma pencils, so lots of trial and error images lol!! I am really pleased how this last effort has turned out, tried lots of different colours and liked this one the best..the first one I coloured in looked like he had been sun tanning all afternoon and was like a red lobster lol!! I did enjoy making this card and isn't that ribbon from the ribbon girl gorgeous!  These papers I have used are also stunning and fit this little guy so perfectly!
