Little Drama Queen - Mo Manning Wednesday's Child Digi

 Monday's child is fair of face. Tuesday's child is full of grace. 
Wednesday's child is full of woe. Thursday's child has far to go.
Friday's child is loving and giving. Saturday's child works hard for his living.
And the child that is born on the Sabbath day is bonny and blithe, and good and gay.

Hey there from Nannyland,

This charming digi from Mo's Digital Pencil just cracks me up.  If you've raised daughters like I have, you have seen this scene played out many times, both in earnest and in jest .  This little cutie is called "Wednesday's Child," patterned after the nursery rhyme written in the 1800's to teach children the days of the week (and apparently do a little fortune telling.)   Mo does such a wonderful job of communicating feelings in her characters, probably because she started out as a children's book illustrator. As a teacher, I think that's why I admire her talent so much, as witnessed by the the number of her images that end up on my cards. 

Since my little lady is obviously in her night wear, I created a background with striped "wall paper" and a lacy frame mimicking a girl's frilly bedroom.   I kept the design fairly simple because I wanted my thespian to take center stage.   I added  aqua gems to the white die cut frame and white gel pen dots to her nightgown for texture.  I created a neutral sentiment in Cricut Design Space because I don't know yet who will receive this card, but I can imagine so many melodramatic quotes that would customize this card to the circumstances of my recipient. What do YOU think she's saying?

  8. This card is sooooooooo adorable. I love all the little details you have added on here: the beautiful coloring and shading, the texture in the collars/cuffs that look like feathers and the dots on the dress are done to perfection. The lacy frame is fabulous and perfect for this fancy lady. And your caption just brings the whole thing together perfectly. Fantastic card.
