Nesties + Copics + Adorable Stamp = One Cute Baby Card! 
Isn't this baby carriage too cute! I had to go blue for this one, I have used too many girly colors lately. The striped blue paper from Bo Bunny's C'est la Vie 12x12 Collection was my inspiration point for color.

Here are the Copics I used to color the baby carriage image. I airbrushed a little E42 around the edges while the image was still in the Nestie die. I also added some piercing around the edge, using the nestie's edge as a guide. 

In between the decorative edged layers, I added foam tape to help show off the pretty edge detail. Of course a baby card needs a bow.... just a quick little seam binding bow to embellish.
