A New Auntie

So I'm back again with another post today and this time my card I made for a New Auntie. First time doing a card for a new auntie, so I really wasn't sure what to do, but finally I decided on one of my favourite Kraftin Kimmie stamps, Diana New Mama ... with a few changes.... 

.. in fact, Diana has a bow on her hair and also some towels near her legs and I thought that if I removed these, she would look more like an auntie than a mummy. What do you think? 

The papers that I used were a magazine freebie, sentiment computer generated, colored Diana with my promarkers, some distressing and faux stitching today and card candy and a bow to finish it off. 

I am entering my card in these challenges today.
Creative Craft Challenges - CONGRATULATIONS

This is just lovely Dora!! So soft and sweet, perfect for a new baby stamp. I think it's a lovely 'new Auntie' card. The bow really sets it off!! Great job! BTW, I'm Kimmie's Mom, NanaDiana and Kim named the stamp for me. Aren't I blessed?
