"Mo's Digital Saturday Sketch" Says Simon

We have Tom's lovely daughter Emma to stay with us at the moment, accompanied by her equally lovely hubby and our positively adorable grandson.  He is just under 8 months' old, is such a cutie and has a fabulous placid nature.  As Emma's hubby is from Crete (where I don't think they do "Mother's Day" like we do) and as baby is too tiny to do anything for Mum except smile (which actually is the best gift), I thought I would make Emma a Mother's Day card from her little one and join in with the Mother's Day challenge over at Simon Says.  Simon says keep it feminine and although I have used a little boy and some more masculine colours - what could be more feminine that a Mother's love for her baby!
Sketch Saturday provided the fabulous sketch for the top of my easel card and the stunning image is by Mo Manning of Mo's Digital Pencil.  Mo's Challenge Blog has the theme blue, brown and neutral - hence my chosen colour combo! 
Papers are a mix of Papermania, Stampin Up and DCWV. I coloured the little teddy ribbon with my Copics and the sentiments are word processed.  The lower half of the card has some little socks/booties I made using a Sizzix Christmas stocking die cut down and my new Stampin Up scallop punch. Thank you for stopping by!

Lesley,
Your card is beautiful! And I think using the little boy on it, is perfect for mothers day. I love how you used the copics in coloring his clothes, the colors you used are perfect. Keep up the good work, I love seeing your creations! ~Jody~
