Yay!!..made a card!!!

Managed to find a bit of time to play today! Mathilda is settling into a routine now (it really is like having a new baby!!)I used this beautiful stamp that I've had for ages but still really love using, can't remember the make. I coloured her with copics using just greytones (apart from the roses) then added lots of distress stickles to her dress. I kept the rest of the card fairly simple with minimum embellishments to keep the focus on the stamped image.
Better hurry up and finish this before baby finishes her nap!!!
