Happy New Baby!

Hi!! I don't know that these would necessarily be baby card images, but I think they work!  I needed to get a card made for our current challenge on Magnolia-licious Highlites!  Of course, we would love to have you drop by and be inspired to enter your own card!!  We love to see what you do!!
 I used images from the newest collection-Princes and Princesses.  They are all available here at Magnolia-licious for great prices and store credit too!  I've used #3030 TILDA IN BATHCAP and #548 BATHTUB.  I've masked Tilda onto the edge of her tub!!   To give credit where it is due~I was totally inspired by the tub and tilda in pink that  I saw on Kylie's Kreations  Blog.  To accommodate the images I made my card 5.5" square.  I used SU's (retired) Vintage Violet with Wisteria Wonder. I love the muted shades of purple. Perfect for a baby girl, methinks!
I used copics to color my images and here are the colors:
skin Eooo, E11 and R30
bubbles BG10 and BG02
tub- T3, 5, 7 and 9 with some T1 for blending the greys together
        top E30 and a little E42 with blender
        'gold' Y21, YR31 and some YR24
Suit and cap- BV20, BV11, BV34 and V28 With some blender to remove color and keep lightness to the outfit.
I used an old scroll stamp by Inkadinkado and Wisteria Wonder ink to add interest to the edge of the feature panel and then sponged the edges with Wisteria Wonder as well.

I guess that's it for today!  Please do check out our challenge-you have the rest of April to upload and link your card to our Magnolia-licious blog for a chance to win!!
Thanks for coming by today! I appreciate it so much!!
