For the "New" Mom...

Hello everyone! Today's card is a toss up for me. On the one hand I love love love it and on the other it's not REALLY what it is supposed to be. Ok, well first here is the card:


And here is the Mojo Monday sketch for this week:


Now, as far as the sketch is concerned, it's on point. However, in my head it was supposed to be a baby card.  Does it work as a baby card? I love it and would totally give it out as a baby card, but it's a little....um..modern, contempo, weird?? LOL. I know we're our own worst critics, but i'm just not sure this really works for a baby card. I added the "twinkle, twinkle, little star" at the bottom to help with the effect and the music notes go with that as well...oh well. I love it, so I am posting it. Ha!  I do hope that you guys like it, though. I thought it was a little out of the jack-in-the-box cool. heehee...

Keva: yes, we are our worst critics and yes it has a very MODern feel to it, but I absolutely LOVE it! Great Job!!!

I think it's gorgeous Keva, and I would definitely give it as a baby card to someone who likes a more modern, contemporary style :)
