Magnolia vs stampavie sketchchallenge

EDIT I fixed a better photo of the card. Now it looks more like it really is.

I'm so glad that a lot of the challenges I like to join are still open. One of them is magnolia vs stampavie. I would've liked to try out for their designteam, but I only have one Magnolia so far and none of the other stamps they require you to have :(

Anyhow, here's a card I made for their sketchchallenge. I get really frustrated at the bad light though. I read somewhere that someone had gotten a lighttent for Christmas. I'm assuming that's how they get so wonderful images of their projects. Now I want one too, lol.

The scrolly patterned paper to the right is light petrol blue, not green like it looks on the photo, but the edges have a bit of lime green in them. That's why I used some limegreen on her socks and the flower to the left. Just a dash to make it more interesting. The text is quickutz "snowday" alphabet. I got it a long time ago, but used it for the first time now (shame on me for taking so long) Stamp from Magnolia, the scrolly details are from the extras that came with the qk "sophisticate" limited edition box in 2007. Love that alphabet!

The card really is more beautiful than it looks - I promise :)

Here's the sketch - taken from magnolia vs stampavie blog:

I think I will send this card to Francesca's parents. You can read all about this brave baby on Andrea's blog.

I´ll send you more images with the letter still waiting on my desk! I´m such a bad friend that I didn´t send it out earlier! Sorry!
