happy mother (to be!) day card

hey there all!
mother's day is coming up! and yes, i LOVE to make mother's day cards for grandmas and moms, but what about all the other  'moms' out there? like Godmothers or mother's to be?

so today, i a card to share that i created for that reason! it's a mother's day card for a mom to be! (either pregnant now, or adopting, etc!) this card has a very special recipient, for a very special occassion!

i used the sketch (um, incredible sketch!) from the poppy sketches challenge site! and fun bonus - it even has a color pallette! sweet! the work is basically done for you! ha ha!

so here's my card:
i used some older lawn fawn sets, as you know, lawn fawn never goes out of style!

the stork is from the incredibly adorable, plus one set! i lightly colored him in with very light greys, just so he would have SOME shading and color! 

the house is from home sweet home, and both the house and the stork are popped up for dimension!
i used a strip of vellum on the side of the card, and also some vellum for the sentiment. woah - vellum overload!! i know - but i wanted to keep it as soft as i could! ha ha!

i stamped the sentiment from happy everything and then added some glittered up wood veneers to create the 'X', like x marks the spot, dude! bring the baby there! lol! :)

so that's my card! i think this sketch is just TOOOOO fun!
