The Stork is in transit!

Aside from new babies, new mothers must be the most beautiful creatures on earth.
~Terri Guillemets, 2010 January 26th, journal

It's not often I get to make baby cards but the daughter of a close 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 it Crafty.

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