Sweet Pea

Hi everyone! Long time no type :). I made this card for my dear friend Aimee, who will be a first time grandma next April.  They just found out it will be a little girl, good thing, she would have had a lot of explaining to do about that leopard print baby coat she bought :). Aimee's daughter would send her an update every week about the size of the baby.  The first text she got was "The baby is the size of a Sweet Pea." So Aimee dubbed the baby Sweet Pea.  Another reason it is a  good thing, she is a girl :).
I used this perfect image from Bugaboo. Bugaboo also had a sale, all digi's 50% off so of course, I bought:) I used Copic markers for my skin tones and Prismacolor Colored Pencils with OMS for the carriage. All of the items used on this card are more than 1 year old.  Even the actual image :)
