Little hands and little feet, a baby girl card!

Hello and welcome back!

One week since my last post, It seems ages!!!! Dublin was amazing, it's such a beautiful city! full of life and culture at every corner.... It was a nice break!!! but I'm already back to reality... and so busy! making cards, family time, house duties... and I haven't started with my Christmas shopping!!! I know of some people who have already finished all their Christmas preparations, presents wrapped and everything! I will hopefully get on with it this week...

I 've got a beautiful card for you today... I was asked to make this card, and I couldn't wait to use my new frame die-cut from Go Kreate.  It makes such a nice card shape. It's a bit smaller than the 6x6 cards I'm used to make, but it's still a very good size.  

I also got this new digi stamp by Wee Stamps for this card... I've got a few baby stamps, but as I'm making quite a lot of baby cards, I wanted a new one, and this one is so cute. It's called "Wee One". 

The papers I've used are from the Princess Fairytale collection by Dovecraft (the pink with white stars paper) and the rest of papers are from the Little Bo Peep paper pad by Crate Paper.

I coloured the little cutie with my Promarkers.

I tried a new style to colour the wee one's hair, I used my new thin tips for the Promarkers. They are great!
For hair I used: Shale, Raw Sienna, and Sandstone,
For the face: Vanilla, almond, Satin and Blossom.
I used Lavender for the little bird.
For the pram: Warm grey 1, blossom, pink carnation and pink mittens. Antique pink for the little dots.

I used some glitter for the ruffles in the pram, to give it a bit of sparkle!

Behind the papers I die cut a Doily from my Sizzix Doily die-cut, and embossed it with the dots embossing folder. I used the inverted side of the embossing, for a change!

The flowers, the pink pearl brad,the pearls and the lace are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I used some glitter glue to make them shine!

The buttons and bow are from local shops and I've had them forever in my stash!!!!

I've decorated the inside with the same paper and die cut from Sizzix (scallop circle)for the greeting.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
