None of us is born thinking we are ordinary. Feeling special is an essential part of the human birthright. If you don’t think you are special, you won’t seek to contribute your gift to the world. -Rabbi Shmuley Boteach

The Stork is in transit!

Aside from new babies, new mothers must be the most beautiful creatures on earth.

It's not often I get to make baby cards but the daughter of a dear friend has entered the parent trap and expecting shortly. This months image from the Progressive freebee challenge at The Outlawz was perfect for what I wanted to try ... 

The image is called "Wishful Asha" from Make if Crafty.

I decided to try something different and used a variant of the spotlight technique. A little masking for the cloud background and voila!
