A 1st birthday card using Baby Fairy Kiki

It was our granddaughter Violet's first birthday recently so I had to make an extra special card for our extra special little one!  I used the gorgeous Baby Fairy Kiki from Mo's Digital Pencil.  I'd already coloured her in with my Promarkers and then decided to put her at  the edge of water using some brilliant new stamps and dies from Marianne Designs.  It was only after I'd masked off Kiki and  stamped up the pond edge that I realised that she was floating in the pond, so had to change the grass into a Lily Pad!  I then added the clouds behind her, again masking her off.  I normally get clouds completely wrong so was really pleased how they turned out.

The dragonfly stamps are part of a stamp set from Marianne which includes the Lily pads and the frogs and dragonfly die cuts from another Marianne set - full deets below the next image.

Marianne Products Used:

Lily Stamp Set - TC0851
Pond Edge stamp Set - TC0835
Dragonfly/Frogs Die set - LR0461
Lily Pad Die set - LR0459
Lacy Doily Die - LR0457
Ribbon Border Die - CR1370

My papers are Lili of the Valley Nitwit papers and the tags and sentiments are from Stampin Up.

It is an awesome card Julie :) I can't stop looking at her, What did you use for the clouds?
I just loooove doing clouds, but i have never found anything here locally which makes it easier for me to do them well.. I just do them with Copics

This is so beautiful. I have done this one many times myself, I own just three actual stamps from Mo so can use different mediums. However, I do have many digis .... actually rather a lot!
