Lovely Mommy-to-be :)

One of my good friends is expecting a baby boy. How exciting! I made her this card to celebrate this great news. It's a really simple card to put together, but the real surprise is that I actually made the printed paper I used for the background. But before that, here is the card:

I used a Kraftin' Kimmie image called "Caroline." I used Memento Rich Cocoa Ink to stamp the image on Copic Xpress- It card stock. I coloured the image with Copics, of course. Here are the colours I used:

Skin: E21, YR0000, R20
Hair: E17, E13, Y23
Dress: B02, B000, B0000

I used flowers from my stash, and I coloured the big blue flower with Adirondack Acrylic dauber in Pearl. I also used pearls stickers on the center of the flowers. The sentiment is from the same stamp set, and I used a Studio G ink pad on just plain white card stock. 

Here's the cool part. I used double embossing resist technique on a plain white card stock. I used an Inkadinkadoo bird wood stamp, a Hero Arts cling background stamp and Clear and Glitter Clear embossing powder. I also used Ranger Distress Inks in the process. I used Milled Lavender, Victorian Velvet, Weathered Wood, Tattered Rose, Shabby Shutters and Broken China. 

I am entering this card into the following challenge: Ink It Up Challenge - Favourite Embellishments
