Ching-Chou Kuik - Growing Love

Here is a card I have made for quite a few people to sign.  It's for a lady who has found out she's pregnant after having IVF so we thought she deserved a special card.  I have used the Sweet Pea Stamps image by Ching-Chou Kuik called "Growing Love" which is available as a rubber stamp.  I have kept the colour scheme pastel yellow and green and steered away from pink or blue.  The backing papers I was given.  I have coloured the image in with my Promarkers/Flexmarkers and highlighted areas with my Pan Pastels and white gel pen.  I have die-cut a Marianne Designs shape along with a Spellbinders butterfly and rubbed Imagination Crafts Diamond Sparkle onto it for some glitter and shine.  I have finished the card off with pearls, seam binding ribbon bow, flowers and Craftwork Cards die-cut sentiment.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
