A New baby card with a twist!

Hello! First of all I would like to welcome my new followers, who have decided to come aboard my crazy train!!!! Thank you so much and I hope you enjoy my crafty ride!!! (not sure why I'm talking about trains and rides, but hopefully you get what I'm trying to say!!!!) 

can you believe is Wednesday already? time flies at the moment.... really busy, trying to get things done (crafty and non-crafty). I'm not complaining though... I love being busy, between my family life, my crafting, writing the blog (it takes me forever to write these few lines... I don't think I'm really easy with words, but I try!).
We are going away for the weekend, which I'm really looking forward to... We are going to Aberdeen to visit friends. I haven't seen them for a few months and we really need a catch up!  I will still have one of my DT cards ready and scheduled to be published on Sunday though... so you won't miss me so much!!! (you are not getting rid of me so easily!!!).

Today I've got a New Baby card for you, but with a twist! It's not blue, it's not pink.... it's green, and yellow, and orange!!!! confusing? yeah! I just wanted to push myself and use my "difficult" colours (meaning, colours I don't usually use and I find difficult to work with...) 
After my CAS card on Monday, I really missed my layers and embellishments, so I went full on with them!!! 

Another thing I'm really happy about... I  found this company with amazing digis, full of the cutest fairies ever! and I bought my first (but for sure, not last) digi from them... isn't this baby fairy the cutest? it's called "Ashee" from Emerald Faeries Garden Stamps.

The papers I've used are from: K&company, Crate Paper Little Bo Peep, Raspberry Road Designs "Love Lives Here"  and a bit of scrap.

I hand stitched around the papers, in alternate layers and distressed with Tim Holtz distress ink pad in Old Paper and Antique Linen (for the main image).

I coloured the cute image with my Promarkers.

I used: Peach, soft Peach, mustard, buttercup, ivory, vanilla, almond, blossom, lime zest, leaf green, Cool grey 4,3,2 and 1, honeycombe, coral, sandstone and blender pen.

To decorate the card I used:

La la land hearts banner
Sizzix doily border die
butterfly punch
Pearls from Wild Orchid Crafts
Paper Doily
Button, lace and ribbon are from local shops.
The felt flower and leaves have been in my stash for years, but I think I got them from The Works.

I created the sentiment on my computer using "I love what you do!!" font.

I hope you like my New Baby card with a twist!

I'm entering this card into the following challenges (in alphabetical order)

613 Avenue Create #57 - Anything goes /optional twist use felt (flowers and leaves are made of felt)2nd entry
As you like it - Showcase and explain yoour favourite style (my favourite style is layers,I just like to chose different papers to match each other and build the layers in different ways and layouts!!! the more layers the happier I am!)
