House Mouse & Friends Challenge #43

I work with an associate in New York who recently welcomed a new baby. He’s been out on paternity leave and we’ve only exchanged emails briefly. I don’t know the sex of the wee one, so I tried to make a gender neutral baby card. Talk about a challenge! All my supplies are either obviously baby boy or baby girl. I tried to cover all my bases and mixed blues, yellows, purples, green and a smidge of pink.
Image Detail I added a layer of sepia accents to the walnut shell and used Spicas and a white gel pen for highlights.
