"Sew" Worth the Wait!

Two posts in one day, check me out! 

I have friend who is waiting on her little man to arrive, he was due yesterday so really any day now but the waiting game is a hard one to play (I have not forgotten it yet myself!). 

I thought I would make a special card for when he makes his appearance as I have the pleasure of being their doula and will be at his birth. 

I used the sketch from Create with Connie & Mary, the Theme and colour combo from The Friday Mashup and the sewing element from The Paper Players challenge. I found the sewing aspect to be very fitting seeing that his mommy is a designer of children's clothing! You can check her out at Couture Kids :)
