A card for a baby girl

Good evening .... been a big day today!  Walk to playgroup, playgroup, walk home, make homemade pizzas for lunch, tidy up, and then off for a drive and a visit to the beach.  But when we got to the beach it poured with rain!  Well there was no stopping my little girl she still wanted to walk on the beach and collect shells.  So that is what we did :)  She should sleep well tonight and the seagulls should as well ... there was a lot of chasing going on.

I have coloured up this gorgeous little image from Digi Darla in copic markers.  The colours I used were:-
RV21, RV23 for the body suit
E000, E00 and R20 for the skin
YR23, Y28 for the hair
C00 for the cloud.

Would be a great image for baby shower invites, christening invites etc. because she was so quick to colour and looks so sweet.

The chipboard sentiment is gorgeous! and is from a set by Bella Chipz.

The card below was my first attempt at putting together the card.  I swished pastel coloured inkpads over some white cardstock to get a lovely effect and then stamped the sentiment.  I wasn't happy with the colour of the sentiment so I went over the top with a pink Souffle pen ... but it just didn't look right.  So that's why we now have the above card :)  Thought I would show you anyway.

I would like to enter my project into the following challenge:-
iCopic Challenge #52 Baby

And some other exciting news ...... look what I got!!!!!!

I'm so excited!  I got Classic Ovals Large, Classic Circles Large and Labels Seventeen!  I have just had a quick go (through my Cuttlebug) and they are really great.  Would have liked the Ovals and Circles to be bigger ... but oh well.  I ordered them online so I actually didn't get to see them first ... but I still love them!  Can't wait to start creating with them.

Ok ... better go and colour some more before it's time for bed.

Thanks for stopping by.
