first time playing in the pool (The Paper Plunge #15)

I have a ton of friends who are expecting new small people very soon and, therefore, a ton of baby cards to make.

I set out to make a card for a baby girl, who was welcomed to the the world recently. But when I came across The Paper Plunge challenge site, I was instantly struck with inspiration that didn;t fit with what I had in mind for this baby girl. I was so excited about this card and LOVE how it turned out; thankfully I know two baby boys who are soon to make their debuts :)

Check out (and play along!) The Paper Plunge.  This is their current sketch challenge (The Paper Plunge #15):
