A new baby Niece

Well, this week brought us an adorable little surprise in the form an early arrival of our new niece, Ambria. Born 4 weeks early she is 6lb 3oz and was just ready to meet the world!! 

Of course, a new baby means a new baby card! I love, love, love my copics and absolutely adore the digi images over at Saturated Canary and have been so so so looking forward to using this particular image, especially in girl colours!!

Those of you that know me know I generally do not do purple but I just thought it worked so off I went!! The tickets and the ticket punch are Stampin Up products - I also used Stampin Up ink to stamp these and the Stampin Write markers to jot the date onto the ticket. (Melon Mambo and Perfect Plum)

I just adore this stamp - it so cute and can be suitable for boy babies or girl babies!! As I said, I used my copics to colour and here are the colours I used:

Hair and eyes: E30, E31, E25 and E27
Skin and lips: E000, E00, E11, R20 and E04
Onsie and wings: R81, R83, R85, BV000, BV00, BV02, E50, E51 and E53

And here is the finished card - I have used some left over Kaiser paper and some retired In Colour cardstock from Stampin Up! and the sentiment is from Stampin Up's "Sweet Essentials" stamp set.

As always, thanks for stopping by :)
