Great nephew's card

Wow, I actually made a card! LOL! No real pressure as this particular birthday is still a few weeks away but I actually decided I wanted to go and make a card!


(If you wish to perfect the art of photographing a card skewiff, please don't hesitate to ask, I'm quite good at it LOL!)

The image was sent to me by Kelly (KMS on MSE) with my birthday card recently. Thanks so much Kelly, I really love this image, it's so cute. I've coloured it with Promarkers, Cool Grey 1 for the bath as it reminded me of the old zinc bath we had to bring into the kitchen every Sunday when I was a child (showing my age there!!). Duck Egg Blue for the line around the bath, Satin for the baby and Ivory on the wings and bubbles plus some glitter.

The papers are all from Pink Petticoat and the small dotty paper has been punched with my MS Scallop Dot edge punch. The Happy Birthday ribbon I found in The Factory Shop last week.

Once I'd finished I realised that Euan will be 4, perhaps this image is a bit too babyish for a 4 year old - never mind, at least it's blue for a boy!

Does it look finished? Not sure if it needs anything in the corners? Maybe a circle with 4 in it or his name? Would love some suggestions.
