All Snuggled Up

I decided to make a baby girl card as it was a baby boy card I made last and I always like to have one of each at hand!
The image is from Di's Digi Downloads, I won it in a recent challenge and was desperate to colour it, I think it's sooo cute.  It's been coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers to match these lovely Marianne Eline's Baby papers.  I've not got much of the paper pack left because it's been so well used, I just love the soft vintage feel to them.  I teamed the papers with kraft and distressed all the edges for a shabby chic look.
I used a Spellbinders Splendid circle die for the lacy mat and used Marianne dies to create the flowers, gently inking the petals with pink ink.  To further embellish, I added Candy Pink Stickles round the edge of the topper, made a pearl topped lace bow, and a good handful of pearls, both faceted and domed.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
