Christmas Contentment

This was the first image that drew me to these adorable Phindy's Place digis.  Anne posted a really lovely card with it and being a new mom myself the image really spoke to me.  It is called Contentment and is such a sweet image. While it isn't a Christmas image, I thought it would make a wonderful holiday card for new parents.

I used the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches, #67.  This sketch was a bit tricky for me this week, don't know why it doesn't look too  complicated here, lol!  I turned it upright to fit with the image.

And it is for Phindy's Place Challenge blog  3-2-1 go challenge. I've  used three gold brads, two patterned papers and one ribbon.  I love fun recipe challenges like this.

Thanks for dropping by today.  Hope you are having a great week!

Card Recipe:
Stamps:  Phindy's Place Contentment and Amuse sentiment
Ink:  Printer, Real Red
Paper:  PTI ssw, Pure Poppy, Ripe Avocado, PTI Christmas Prints

This is beautiful, Kathleen! It's so elegant with the gold brads and the satin ribbon. (When I first saw it I thought of you and your sick little ones---a mommy giving some TLC.) Thanks for playing along with us at Tuesday Morning Sketches!
