Card for a New Baby Boy

One of the great things about a large family is that it just keeps on growing larger! My nephew is a new daddy! He and his wife welcomed their new baby boy, Aero Evan, last month.  That makes me a great-aunt 4 times over with #5 coming in July! I don't often make baby cards, but when I saw Mo Manning's new infant images I just knew I had to ink them up.  Of the three "hairstyles" she offers, the straight hair made me think of my nephew's own hair, that is when he doesn't have it buzzed.  This little guy is just the sweetest!

I colored him with Copics, mostly B0000 and B000.  The dp is from Daisy D's that has been in my stash for years.  The scalloped frame is Nestabilities.  I kept the card pretty flat this time because my nephew's wife is an avid scrapbooker and this will be easier to put in the baby's scrapbook.  Easier to mail, too, since I don't anticipate being able to visit them any time soon. 

From the pictures I've seen of Aero on Facebook, he looks very much like this little guy.  I'm pretty sure I selected the right hairstyle!  Many blessings, baby boy!

Thank you for stopping by today! The time you spend here is very much appreciated!
