Expecting Someone?

When I first saw this image, I just thought they were such a cute couple! Now that I had a chance to create a card with them I knew I wanted to make a non-traditional shower card. I wanted to stay away from colors that normally represented a baby.
A co-worker is expecting her 3rd child and is due the second week in August so I created this card for her. Hope she likes it! We are throwing her a surprise shower next Friday. =)
Here's a closer look at the happy couple! I had a little trouble in coloring his pants. The pen I was using decided to run out of ink just as I was done coloring. Well, no one's perfect...
I've refilled the ink but didn't want to do more damage, so I left it.

Have a good one!
