A Father to be

I was asked by a colleague of mine to make a Father's Day card to give to her husband, who is going to be a father for the first time really soon, so thought to make a post to share, as I thought it came out so sweet.

She asked for the stork and those exact words on the front as well and so it was quite easy. I found the stork image free on the internet, colored it with my promarkers, and the polka dot papers I recycled from an old shop-bought card. I then finished it off with a little bow and two silver gems.

I really loved how it turned out.

Entering my card in these challenges today.
