Baby card for my Niece

 Finally made a card for my Niece who was due on Sunday but still waiting for something to happen

She lives in Leicester so unfortunately I will only see Squidge by facetime or photos when she does arrive

This took me ages to colour as I used 4 different colours each for the skin & hat although you cant tell in the photo

I have used my trustee promarkers

Digi image was from Sugar Nellie called Bambino, unfortunately they have decided to shut shop so i'm not sure if it's still available anywhere

The papers are from CDs by Ella's Design

The New Baby die is one i've just picked up from The Range

Buttons from my stash

Happy crafting & stay safe
