Pink Gem Baby Girl Bundle - Cuttlebug Challenge

Hi everyone, a card today for the Cuttlebug Challenge where this week there's a sketch to follow. I've used my cute Pink Gem Designs Baby Girl Bundle stamp and watercoloured her with distress inks and cut out. All the layers embossed with cuttlebug folders and I used labels one nesties for the panel behind the baby. The little birds are part of the stamp but I cut these out too to use for an element of the sketch. There's some stickles and sparkle gel pen here and there to which might be just about visible, a little pink BG button, sheer polka dot ribbon all mounted on a Papermania pink scalloped card blank, can't seem to stop using these cards, they're lovely. TFL Chris x

Oh Chris this is so sweet!! Love this image ~ how darling and the birds are as well!! Your coloring is fabulous as well ~ but that is no surprise!!
Thanks so much for letting me know about the Fabriano!! I looked it up and still have a question ~ do you use hot or cold press??? I don't know what the difference is!
Thanks so much for letting me know I really appreciate your thoughtfulness! I would love to get some ~ anything to make my coloring better!!
That is cool about you being born on Easter Sunday as well! My dad was also born Easter Sunday but his b-day is the 21st of April.
