Baby's First

Here is a card I made for a special little girl celebrating her first birthday.
I love these sweet and fun free digis from MelonHeadz.

I began by printing off the little girl image, colored it with Copic markers then fussy cut it out.

TIPLightly spray your printed digital with Krylon Workable Fixative to prevent bleeding if you are painting your image or coloring...it works great!!! 
I scratched my head trying to think about what kind of background to place it over,  so I got out my stencils hoping to be inspired.  I thought this circle one from Simon Says was fun so I stenciled just a small portion of the card front using Spun Sugar Distress inks.  It made the perfect backdrop to pop dot the image onto.  I stamped the birthday sentiment from Penny Black just under the stenciling, added a black rhinestone to the headband and done.

Adding my card to these challenges:
