Sweet Baby Girl card

Isn't this just the sweetest baby girl image. I love her cute little pursed lips. She's a digi image from Mo Manning called BabyGirl. Mo also has a cute little cooking girl available for $1. All proceeds will go to help Japan. You can see all of the details on her blog in the March 15th post.

I made this card for the Color Me Creative Copic challenge group lead by the uber talented Suzanne Dean. If you have Copic markers & want to learn how to use them.......then sign up for a class. Suzanne is an amazing & patient teacher. This is also an amazing group of caring individuals. You will make friendships for a lifetime. Anywho.......For the challenge we were asked to use these colors......pink, green & white or cream.......perfect colors for a baby card. Also my absolute FAVorite color combo. I of course colored this little darling with my Copic markers.

You can find this sweet, sweet "Love at first Sight" Word Art at Create with TLC. It's part of the "Birth Day" set. Paulette has a wide range of sentiments & Word Art for every occasion imaginable. She also has over 2,000 free graphics & sentiments on her Create with TLC blog. If you're not a follower.......you're really missing out!

The DP (decorative paper) is from NitWits. It's from Mary's beautiful "Affection" collection. I find that I use these digi background papers for just about every card I make now. Her selection is awesome & her artwork is AMAZING & it prints out beautifully on my inexpensive Georgia Pacific cardstock from Walmart. Plus storage is no problem. LOL

Copics used for this card are:
E0000 & E000 (skin), R00 (cheeks & nose), R11 (lips), E41 & E50 (hair), RV000 & RV11 (dress)

The ribbon is a gift from my friend Nora. Thanks, hon! Isn't it just the perfect addition to this card. The stick pin is from my LSS (local scrapbook store). Flowers are from an old collection of die cuts that I forgot I had. LOL I used Nesties (circle & lacey circle) to frame the little darling. Bling & sheep are from Michael's. The pretty pink button is from Walmart's ever decreasing fabric section. And lastly.......my very FAVorite Stardust Stickles to add some more bling......cuz a girl can never have too much bling. LOL

I think that about covers it all. LOL This card is for the daughter of a friend who is expecting a baby girl any day now. Hope she likes it.
