Crafty Catz challenge #262 ~ New beginnings

Happy Friday everyone, it's the start to the weekend Yay!  Sadly for me though this means I am back to work on Monday having recuperated after my operation so less time to spend in my craft room but I shall just have to make the most of the time I do get in here! lol  Anyway as it's Friday that means a new challenge over at Crafty Catz and this week the wonderful Carol has picked our theme and it's new beginnings, so new baby, new home, you get the idea lol we have a fabulous sponsor for you this week in the shape of ...
For my card I went with a New Job theme and I have used 2 digi stamps from the Greeting Farm and joined them together to make one, the background paper is from Raspberry Road Designs and as it had a creamy base to it I printed the image (mixture of dressy Edward and dressy Ebony) onto some cream paper I had and had to colour carefully as there was a certain amount of bleeding going on!  I coloured with copics and spectrum pens & pencils, the hair didn't blend as well as I would have liked but the suit got some nice texture to to it.  The sentiment was cut on the Cricut and the stars are all from the one starburst die by JS and I finished off with a little black liquid pearl on the flower on her hairband.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Sweet Stampin' ~ Girly but NO pink
