Teddy Baby Card

My Mum asked me to make a card for her friends as they are expeting a Grandchild very soon. They don't know if it will be a boy or girl yet so I needed to cover both!

I saw this sketch over at Fussy & Fancy which I thought would give the ideal opportunity to use an equally split pink and blue background. I have used papers from Dovercraft's Back to Basics selection, a Nellie Snellen Circle Frame & Nesties Labels Fourteen dies, I used Brilliance pearlescent inks to edge the pink and blue papers and Lemon Peel ink from an Ancient Page Petalpoint ink set on the sentiment tag and on the cut edge of the image. The teddy is coloured with Promarkers, with a background of Pebbles chalks, I put a tiny white spot on his nose with a white gel pen and used a Sakura Stardust pen for his Nappy Pin. I made the ribbon by forming 3 loops of ribbon and sticking them together to form the rosette I then added a button from my stash to finish.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Fussy & Fancy - "Sketch"
Stamp Something - "Anything Goes"
Tuesday Throwdown - "Baby / Child"

*The button is from Grandma's button tin :o) everything else in New!

**My 3 in a row are Digi Image, Die Cuts & Glitter (Sakura Glitter Pen)
