Welcome to the World! A sweet card for a sweet newborn

So, my dear gal pal just had a darling baby boy, and I thought the occasion warranted a card.

This little Hedgehog cutie is from Penny Black Stamps.  He is hand-colored with Copic markers, (Copics are SOOOO awesome... they make me feel like an artist without actually needing a whole lotta skill - this is only my second time using them ^.^) and although you can't tell, his cheeks are glittered and sparkly, as any self-respecting hedgehog would have it.

Making baby cards is pretty new to me, and boy cards in particular are completely outside my comfort zone, but I like the way this one turned out.
Here is a closeup of the Mica Tag detail.  Its stamped and embossed (yah, the letters are crooked but I.. uhh... did that on purpose!  It works, dontcha think? =)  Like how the ribbon tie matches the water exactly?  Thats because I colored it myself with the same Marker I used to color the water.  Neat-o torpedo!
