Baby Girl

Today's card is for a baby girl...makes a change from Christmas! The image is 'In a nutshell' by Penny Black, which I coloured with watercolour pencils. The papers are from the Papermania 'Sweet Nothings' pack...thought it was about time I tried to use up some of my old papers! I distressed the edges, then added some faux-stitching with my CutterBee Bug and a white gel pen. The flowers are a mixture of Prima and Poppicrafts, and the raffia lace is from Hobbycraft.
