Close to my Heart

Hey everyone!
Today I'm featuring a card I popped together today.  My friend LOVES purple to the point she just called her baby Violet, so this was the card I made to go with my baby gift.  I'm so happy with how she turned out and how my colouring is improving.
The image is Close To My Heart by Saturated Canary.  The papers are some old Chatterbox ones I had stashed away 'cause they're some of my favs.  The top lace/gem is Prima Say it in Crystals.

Copics used:
Skin - E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20
Hair (mother) - E42, E44, E47, E49
Hair (child) - E39, E37, E34
Wrap - BV20, BV23, BV25, BV29
Dress: YR23, YR24, YR27, YG91, YG93, YG95, YG97, YG99
