A baby card for Retro Rubber.....

Hello Everyone: Today I'm thrilled to be the guest stamper over at the Retro Rubber challenge blog again. This week it's a sketch challenge and I hope you guys join in the fun. This is the card I made for it, I hope you like it.
I chose to color it with very soft pinks, yellows and greens, using SU markers and the aqua painter. I sponged the edges of the water color paper with Hello Honey and a little bit of Daffodil Delight. The strip of DSP is from Lily of the Valley and the image I used is from a retired Flourishes set.  The beautiful crystal buttons are retired SU and the pink card stock is SU Pink Pirouette.
The sentiment is also from this lovely Flourishes stamp set, I died cut it with Spellbinders Nestabilities die set called Oval Regalia and sponged it with Hello Honey too.
I love sketches, they are a fun way to get creative, this one is simple but fabulous, so I hope you give it a try.
Thank you so much for visiting, it always makes me so darn happy to see your comments so I thank you for those too. This is the sketch that inspired my card and, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. 
Till next time, have a fabulous day!!
Maria.

Kudos Maria! On being a guest designer and on your wonderful card. You've made the bassinette look so soft and fluffy. If I had just one ounce of you're talent on coloring and shading I'd be happy.

Thanks for visiting Mary and for your comment, I'm glad you liked my card.

Thanks Lisa, the image is sweet indeed and coloring it was fun and easy. When you stamp your image on the water color paper with Stazon ink, give a light coating of water to small sections at the time and bloat it with a paper towel, that way, the paper will be damp and the colors will blend easily.
Thanks again for visiting.
