My sister -in -law recently gave birth to a baby boy - and we're all very excited about him. She had to have IVF treatment, so we've been with her on her long journey to becoming a mum. Even then he wasn't in a hurry to appear - over 10 days late and finally had to be extracted by C section! So I didn't feel that a "traditional" baby card would be right and set my mind to creating something a little different. This took me out of my comfort zone and in to the world of brights! It felt right that my little "monster" should be exploding from the card and this was the feel that I tried to create with the folded paper "window". I was really pleased with the result (even though it isn't perfect!) and love the colours. Perhaps I will be experimenting more with these from now on!
I do hope my sister in law still has her sense of humour!
