More Triplets!!!

They've been born :)

If you've read any of my previous posts you'll know I mean triplets expected by a girl in work!

Planned C-Section Monday lunch-time, Boy & 2 Girls as they'd been told - 4lb 2oz, 4lb & 3lb 12oz. Great weights seeing as they were 2 months early................can't wait to go and see them :) All is well, they are in Special Care but that's expected. I will check with her if she minds me posting the picture she sent - I doubt it cos they are no doubt all over Face book by now!

So onto the card............

This card I'm entering for 4 challenges:

Penny Black Saturday - 'Sweet'........I don't think you can get much sweeter than triplets!
Simon Says Challenge - 'New Baby'........Do I get 3 entries, lol!
Dutch Dare Challenge - Sketch......Kept sketch to the same orientation but enlarged base card to A5.
Raise The Bar - Gift - Images given to me as a RAK by my buddie Samantha - thanks hunny :)

The image is Penny Black but as it was a RAK, and I haven't looked, I don't know what it's called! I've coloured them with my Promarkers.

I've used a doily as the semi-circle piece behind the image and some glitter lacy ribbon as the panel below.

Thanks for popping over and I hope to spend some quality time visiting over the weekend - so see you then :)

Edited to add......
.........Thank you all for you wonderful comments but I feel I need to confess.....................I've not masked the image - it's 3 seperate images that I have used! The back one is DST'd, the middle one has foam pads and the front one x2 deep foam pads!
