You have no idea IRL how adorable this little fella looks. When I discovered that Bambino from Sugar Nellie was available as a digital, I swear I swooned!! This is an image I have coveted for sometime, to be able to own it as a digi - well I could hardly contain my excitement.
Upon discovering this image I immediately purchased and downloaded it - before printing I adjusted my print settings to print in a light grey ink. When coloring an image like this, one would like to take credit for the beauty of it, but the image is so wonderfully drawn that, using my Copics, it took very little talent on my part to bring him to life.
I must confess that the background was made using my Silhouette Cameo with a pattern from Lori Whitlock, and was sitting on my desk from a few weeks ago (since it was blue that is what determined this little cutie would be a boy). The card was originally going to be used for a birthday card that I later decided I wanted bigger - so I resized the pattern on the Cameo and made another step card to use. I sat this on the shelf waiting for future use. Waste not, want not.
Honestly, I am so crazy about this image I had trouble even wanting to put anything around him. Digging into my stash of embellishments I came across these sweet little buttons that have been waiting a LONG time to be used, then I settled on a small sentiment from an old Fiskars Baby set.
Now I hope someone has a little boy soon so I can put him in the mail!! If he spends much time in my stamp room I may have to give him a name and adopt him.....

Awwww, the miracle of a sweet Baby!! This really is a fabulous image, ans I love how you printed it in gray to soften the lines to color this cuddly little boy. You definitely put your whole heart into this card and it shows!!
You are getting a lot of use from your new toy - the Cameo - and now that Will and Kate have had a boy, maybe this card will have a royal destination!! LYMI
