Precious Little Angel

I made this card for a friend who will be having her baby girl any time soon.  I just got this wonderful image from Bugaboo Stamps and thought it would be perfect for a rocking stepper card.  (And also for their latest challenge, which is a Bingo challenge.  I am going all out on this one and opted for the 'full house'!)
I usually colour images with watercolour pencils, but I have just invested in some ProMarkers.  I have only coloured a few images so far, so I'm still practising. I don't have a lot of colours yet, so can't do any amazing blending techniques. They take a bit of getting used to, but don't smell as much as I thought they would and are good value for a starter to alcohol inks. 
If you would like to make a similar card, I followed instructions from Beccy's Place.

I have used the following materials to create this card:

  • Card from my stash
  • Bugaboo image - Moon Baby, Sweet Dreams
  • Patterned papers & banner free from Making Cards magazine
  • Buttons & pearls from Papermania
  • Whispers ink pad
  • Promarkers
  • Sizzix flower die and dotty embossing folder
  • Outline stickers from Little Claire Designs

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
