Oh Boy!

Happy Saturday!  
I love Saturdays and being inspired by the IC Challenge at Splitcoast.  This morning the inspiration comes from an Etsy site called Bohemian Findings.  The store is filled with sweet little charms.
I needed a baby card and saw this cute little charm:

I felt like doing some watercoloring, so I began making my card front by painting bands of blue using my watercolor paints.  I tried to blend the bands together using water then when dry, cut the panel into 2 pieces.  I mounted the panels on my card front then stamped the sentiment with black Memento ink.
This adorable baby image is a digi from Melonheadz.  I printed it off onto heavy weight cs then coloured it with Copics and fussy cut it out.  I then mounted it over the blue panel using pop dots.

I am adding my card to these challenges:

(I love brights; it immediately draws you eye in and gets your 
attention.  Blue is also my fav colour and I find it the easiest 
colour to work with when making cards)
