Another Sweet Magnolia Card...

OK... so we are adopting a baby. I already have Petite Diva... but despite mine, my Hubby's and Medical Science's best efforts...She will be our one and only homegrown baby. We will be adding to our family this year with the miracle of adoption. This sentiment of "DREAM" is perfect for this card and our family as adoption has always been our DREAM. The little gal holding the baby looks like Petite Diva... so I made the shirt her favorite color, YELLOW! I think this card may even be her "I am a big sister" announcement. I colored it with so many things... copics, gamsol and faber castel pencils and of course... SHIMMERZ. I used them on the wings, the headband and the green in the sneakers. I used a sketch from SCS and my cuttlebug. I also added details with gel pens and glitter pens. I had the yellow flower and I thought it added the right touch. I don't know gals, this is a pretty sweet card as well... I may have to offer a dental plan!(LOL) thanks for looking and have a wonderful day!
