Deep Ocean Challenge DT - Welcome Ella!

 Woohoo!!  We have a very special challenge this fortnight at Deep Ocean Challenges in honor of my very good friend Louise who recently welcomed her gorgeous baby girl Ella into the world!  Apologies for the terrible photo - still trying to sort out some sort of photo editing onto this computer!!  Told you I can't take straight photos lol!  As you may know I already created a card for Louise and her hubby to congratulate them for the Magnolia Down Under Challenge the other week, so this card is for their gorgeous little girl Signe to congratulate her on becoming a big sister!  I always like to send a card to siblings when a new baby arrives so they don't start to feel left out.
 I masked together the gorgeous baby stamp with the cute Sweetie Tilda to create a little scene of Signe looking after Ella peacefully sleeping!  I've coloured them with copics and added stickles here and there.
 I added some pom pom trim from my stash and some butterflies punched with a Martha Stewart punch.
 I added a tulle bow and some flowers from my stash.  The pennants were cut with the flag and cloud doohickey die #30 and the letters were cut with a Tim Holtz alphabet die.  The twine is from The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop.
I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this fortnight at Deep Ocean Challenges!  Congratulations again to my lovely friend Louise too!  Thanks for looking! x
