Welcome Baby Card

Hello friends,

This week I made a baby card for a friend with a new arrival - a boy. 

Baby card by Jesse Rowan

A cuttlebug was used to make the embossed background, which I swiped with blue and brown ink, added butterfly wings to the baby from an old cabinet card,  with a small gold wreath behind him like a halo.

Butterfly wings for me symbolise freedom, soaring above, enjoying the view below, and a sign of Spring. So I thought I'd share a couple of butterfly giveaways I have 'worked on' in Photoshop to emphasize or change colours. Perhaps they will find their way into some of your artworks...





I'm joining up with Wen and her followers for her Simply Neutrals Tuesday party at her Blog, Apple Apricot. Come over to see more gorgeous neutral artworks...



It's Autumn here in Australia, and a perfect day for a swim at the beach...30 degrees Celcius. so I'd better get some work done first!

Happy Spring and Autumn to us all.

Love,
Jesse

    I am jealous of the super weather !
    We have still not spring - still so cold.. today we had some sun and the temperature got nearly 14 degrees Celsius ( This feels so good) But I guess Easter will not be as nice with the weather - we will see)
    Thank you for the freebies - I will for sure use them in a future project! Thanks a lot! ♥♥♥
    My best wishes for you!
    Austria sends hugs to Australia!

    1. Hi Susi, Thanks for visiting here at my blog. Sorry your Spring is so long in coming. We are so lucky in our temperate climate - except for bushfires, which we were so surprised to see happen in March. Very scary. But our Winter is mild - no frosts at my house! Hope your Easter is not too cold.
      Hugs,
      Jesse

    1. Hello Dorthe, My children have rarely seen snow - never where we live on the coast. They would love it. Hope you built a snowman or lady!
      Hugs to you too. Sending hopes for a sunny Spring soon...
