A baby card with an embellished image, greeting and some bright decorative paper

A card for my stash and I am stretching myself a little.  I don't usually use such bright paper for baby cards but it seemed to work best of this stamped image from my stash.  I used a rectangle Nestibility die to cut a rectangle in the paper before adhering it to my pink card front.  Works really well to nicely highlight the focal element with the same colour as the card.  The image was stamped in pink and I embellished it with clear glitter gel pen in the star and some shimmery paint on the moon.  I very lightly watercoloured the dress in pink.  I used double sided tape to secure it in the opening in the decorative paper.  I embellished the stamped greeting (SU image - scallop circle punch) as well.  I added pink in the ring using a marker and then added clear glitter with a gel pen.  I added a bit of glitter to each star in the scallops as well.  Used a punch to make a mask and sponged a bit of pink ink into the central space.  I mounted it to my card front using double sided tape after sponging the outside edges with a bit of pink ink.  I am happy with my card!!           Therese
