New Mommy card

Happy Aloha Friday! It was a good day at work which is something I rarely report, but today was actually a good one. Hope your day was just as good. :)
This should be a fairly short one as there isn't really too much to this card I made for my expecting co-worker. I wish I had a picture of her, if I can find one I will definitely add it to this post. Anyhoos... getting back on track... She's expecting another baby boy in a couple of months. I decided to make her a small congratulatory card since she divulged the sex of the baby to us just a few days ago.
For this card I wanted the main character to look as much like her as possible. I used preggers Anya's body and WS-Odette's head for this alteration. I colored her as close to Delaram's skin & hair color as possible. She is from Iran and is prone to a nice dark gold tan during the summer, I am so jealous. >.< I also altered the top to make it sleeveless since she's been sporting that style for the summer. She's always looking made up so I added some eyeshadow and kept her lipstick dark. I used Stickles for her top and plain black for her pants and shoes. -> -> ->
As for the rest of the card, I used Spellbinders to die cut another 4x4 scalloped circle card and used the corresponding circles to frame her out. The card itself was from white cs and embossed with Swiss dots. The second cs of glitter soft green was also cut using a smaller sc die cut. The blue glitter paper was embossed with the swirls embossing folder and cut out with a SB circle die cut. I added a white ribbon. Normally I don't like to directly give anyone a card. I usually try to hide it somewhere where I know they will see it and be surprised. Well she was surprised and she loved it. She was amazed how much Mommy Anya looked like her. As soon as I can find a picture of her I will add it to this post. I might have a couple more to post later, but for now I'm going to see if I can get in an hour of reading. Hope you have a great evening!! Mahalo for stopping by. :)
