When Caitlyn becomes Henry!

I love the new baby range from Sugar Nellie....this is actually baby Caitlyn, but I've "altered" her hat from a lil flowery number to a "spotty" one!!
I used the previous sketch from The Sugar Bowl to create this card, and some yummy October Afternoon papers. I coloured with Prisma colours, and was surprised how quick this image was to colour.
As i mentioned, I altered the flowery hat...initially I used a gel pen, but it was too heavy, so I restamped the hat and used a glittery pen instead, then simply decoupaged the hat (i only used foam pads at the top to leave different levels although you can't see that in my photo!!).
Other ingredients: Making Memories felt heart, letter tabs and glittery number/letters, Hero Arts sentiment, dummy is unknown.
I'd like to enter this card into Creative inspirations (my first time entering this challenge site!!)....the challenge is "new year, new products" and of course my baby image is exactly that!
Have you joined in my Sugar Nellie candy yet...? bx

Stunning card Bernie! Love how you've turned the flowers into spots! Your LO and papers are gorgoeus. Could you please tell me how you tie your twine into a bow like that?! I've tried before but can't seem to get it right!
Hugs, Vicky ~X~
