Baby announcement

I just wanted to share with you an adorable design I mocked up for my sister-in-law.

She loves antiques, and her house is decorated in a very beautiful shabby chic style, like something straight out of a magazine! A few years ago I took a photo of her daughter (now 3) and created a vintage-looking portrait out of it, by highlighting elements of the black and white photo with color. I think she really liked it, because she was the one who suggested doing that same style for a baby announcement. I love the way this turned out, and am thinking about possibly adding some vintage lace or cording (depending on if the baby is a boy or girl).
