Baby girl - awwwww

My friend asked me to make a card for her friend's relative's baby girl... I know, I got a bit confused as well. But then I dug into my Mo Manning folder and came up with this:

I had loads of fun colouring the image and glittering it up to my hearts delight. It's all Copics this time, no inkpads in sight.

I made the frills on the bottom punching golden vellum and then layered some lace and frilly ribbon on top. 

The papers are from American Crafts (mmmmm....llluuurve those) and the wee bit of sewing was done by hand. The gems I just found from my bling drawer. They matched. What can I say.

The sentiment inside is from Whimsy Stamps digital sentiment set, I think it's called Bundle Of Joy.

I made a matching envelobox using Martha Stewart scoring board. Used the same patterned paper and trimmed the box with satin ribbon to finish it off nicely.

I would like to enter this card into following challenges:
