Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge--Retro

Good Morning, Are you ready for another awesome  Mo's Digital Pencil challenge theme by the super talent, Elaine?  Elaine has chosen the theme Retro, 30's, 40's, 50's.....  I am not sure which one I chose but I would imagine 50's: 

Isn't this just an adorable little baby, almost looks like a porcelain doll.  I really wanted to keep the soft pastel colors for the baby image and tried not to over power the image with the dp.  I chose some retro looking lace, polka dot and newsprint dp from K & Company.  The image is colored with copic markers and sponged the edges with distress ink.
The baby carriage was cut with my cricut. and the Sentiment was hand written on a Vintage Label punched from the dp.  The butterfly was cut from the dp as well and the butterfly body was covered with tiny pearls.  A band of lace topped with tiny pearls finish this dainty baby girl card using the beautiful Baby Girl with Wispy Hair.
Be sure to stop by the Challenge Blog to the wonderful creations by the rest of the Design Team.  Be sure to check out the new really wonderful images by Mo. She has been busy.  
For any of you who hate when someone doesn't follow the angel policy rules and sells or otherwise abuse the policies of the super talented digital artists we have all grown to love. Support these artist by going to the following blog and add the Stop Theft Badge to your blog sidebar.

Thanks for stopping by, so glad to see you and glad to be back in the swing of things again. :)
