Cloud 9 #2 in ColourQ colours

Back again for the second Cloud 9 challenge.  The simplicity of the sketch really lends itself to the subject I had in mind.  One of my daughter's teachers announced she was pregnant with her second child.  Thinking completely selfishly, my first question was when it was due in the hope that she would see out the year, which hopefully she will.  

So, as we don't know whether it is a boy or girl, I thought the latest ColourQ colours were entirely appropriate. The one stipulation my daughter wanted was a teddy bear of some kind.

Well, a rabbit is pretty close.  Unfortunately, the new SU colours have not hit our shores yet (I think I will be in big trouble when they do),  so went with the colours on hand.

What you need
Cardstock - SU white; MME Lush 2 Navy
Stamps - Wplus9 Kisses and Cuddles
Ink - SU Old Olive, Certainly Celery; Memento Rich Cocoa
Copics  YR 12,15,18
Die - MFT Fishtail Stax
Gems - Kaisercraft

Hopefully I will be back with another challenge card, I am working my way through the SU DSP, mostly Christmas paper.  I should have enough cards for several years to come.  May need to do some birthday cards just to break it up a bit.
