MMSC13 - Sweet Baby!

This is my submission for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge 13! It is a variation of a thank you card I sent to my folks when my son was born. I hand stitched around my *quilt squares* that are cut from some pretty wrapping paper. I *tied* my quilt with blue floss.

The image is a SU! image from 1994....but I still think it's just adorable! I colored it with Copic Markers and highlighted it with Spica Glitter pens. The star was another from that set. I stamped it on the back of glitter paper and cut them out to be different sizes, matted them on Bashful Blue cardstock and cut them out again.
