This is my final card for Falliday Fest - I'm done with all of the challenges! Since this one called for a special watercolour background, I kept the design simple to not hide it too much. I was skeptical of how the watercolour would look because the colours were bleeding into each other more than I was expecting when the glossy paper was still wet, but it dried into a really cool look that was perfect for a sky, which softer patches that look like clouds. It became the perfect background for the stork.
For the design, I drew inspiration from Sunday Stamps Sketch #137 (turned sideway) and only placed a long strip of cardstock at the bottom. I was looking for a bold sentiment that would work for a baby and found "And they lived happily ever after" in Big News, which I thought worked great. I embossed it in navy powder, and added little clusters of stars in Daffodil Delight ink around it. Balloons and baby booties from the same stamp set were added as well.
