Dreams coming true

This is a congratulations card for a friend who has, after a very long haul and a lot of ups and downs, adopted a little boy. He’s a beautiful little fellow and I’m thrilled that he’s been given the chance of a loving, stable home and that they have been given the chance of a family.

He’s not a tiny baby so I didn’t want to make the card too pastel and babyish... but he’s still only a toddler so I could have held back on the dark colours a bit more than I did! But you know how these things evolve... I actually started with Brocade Blue and Bashful Blue cardstock, and some Bashful Blue Designer Series Paper. I don't know what happened!

Cardstock: Kraft, Bravo Burgundy, Night of Navy, Bordering Blue, Brocade Blue, Whisper White
