Aud Sentiments Challenge - Thursday 9 May 2013 - Sentiment for Baby/Mother and Child

Today is the day for another challenge at the Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog.  This fortnight the topic is "sentiment for baby/sentiment for mother and child".
Our sponsor for this fortnight is "A Day for Daisies" who have a lovely selection of digital stamps and polymer stamps on their website.
I have used the A Day for Daisies image called "Bundle of Love" for both of the cards that I have made.  I decided to make a baby girl version and a baby boy version.  First up is the baby girl card I have made.  I have coloured the image in with Promarkers and then die-cut.
The backing papers I have used are Bearly Mine Designs Petunia Parade and Bearly Mine Designs Love Dreams.  I have used a heart shaped doily and inked the edges with a pink chalk ink pad.  The card has been finished off with a glittery flower, sentiment off the computer, seam binding ribbon bow and some pearls.
The baby boy card I have coloured the image in with my Promarkers, die-cut and gone around the edge with a blue chalk ink pad.  
The backing papers I have chosen to use for this card are Bearly Mine Designs Floral Breeze and Bearly Mine Designs Mini Dots.  I have added a circular doily which I have used the same blue chalk ink pad around the edges.  The card has been finished off with some lace, paper flowers with brad centres, gems and sentiment off the computer.
