Adorable (baby card)

Hi, everyone!
Made this baby card for one of my co-workers living in US, I'm gonna packed it with a gift and send him in next Monday. I'm always complaining about the post offices are closed in weekends. We can post only envelopes and postcards to mailboxes...

Well, this is the card, 'Adorable (baby card)'
I used the techniques that Jennifer McGuire showed us at the the 2Peas video this week. - from Part 1 (Basics), and using perfect pearls as water colors from Part 2 -
* Actually, she mainly uses the Dimensional Pearls by Ranger, those are water-based. But I yet to have them, so I used several Liquid Pearls, these are also water-based.

So I decided to send this for joining the 2Peas 'Thinking Inking Class Week 6', and also for joining the Hero Arts 'monochromatic' challenge this week (July 20th - 26th).

And yesterday I found that the Carrdvarks challenge this time is 'baby or bridal shower card or altered item'. Also want to join it.
And one more!, I submitted this card to the July planning by a community member. Oh my! One card for four challenges!?!? LOL.
