Baby Fairy Image for a Baby Girl

I've made so many male cards lately that I thought it was time to make a girly one. So why not get ahead with the card for a friend of mine who's expecting a baby girl. 

When I spotted this ADFD digi I just had to have it. I've colored it using mainly pink and blue Promarkers, and I've added Diamond Stickles to their wings. I love Diamond Stickles because of how its color varies with the angle and light - from pink, to blue or even clear.

I'm not really a "pink person", so I went with kraft paper for the card base, layers of blue papers and pink embellishments -  pearls from my stash, Basic Grey flower chipboard stickers and a Kaisercraft sentiment heat embossed with pink embossing powder.

All edges have been distressed with Walnut Distress Ink, and I've used a circle die for the sentiment and a MB Corner Bow die.

The inside is decorated with the same papers as for the front, but in a different order. 3 pearls are used for embellishment.

This card is for these challenges:
1) Passion for ProMarkers - #200 All that glitters
2) Bearly-Mine Challenges - #89 Dies and/or Punches
3) Heck of a Challenge - Bingo (Pearls+Die+Flowers)

7) Allsorts - #209 Here Come the Girls
8) Di's Digis Designs - Winged Things
9) QKR Stampede - #41 Any Winged Creatures
10) Make it Monday - Anything Goes

Danielle Vincent said...

This is so soft and sweet with just the right touch of pink to keep it girly. I LOVE pink so I tend to go a bit overboard with it sometimes myself. LOVE how you kept it understated and yet obvious that this is for a baby girl with just the subtle coloring. Absolutely gorgeous. I'm sure your friend will really appreciate it. Hugs D
