A baby girl card

A beautiful Saturday morning and at last time to blog.  I was asked to make a card for a work colleague for her new baby granddaughter, not born yet, aw!
I had a made a cut out for her last new baby grandson, and she wanted me to duplicate it, I'm afraid I am one of these people who can do one thing, but always has to alter something on the second, my alterations on this one has to be the colours of course, (the other one was blue and white) I wanted pink, but a bit more!  I tried to find pink and something else, then went to Design Seeds here to get some colour suggestions, I went with this

Then I had to find some digi paper, and a thought occurred, why not make my own! now it's not something I have done before, so a peek on the web to find out how and these papers are what came of it all.  The background paper is custom shapes in Photoshop with a couple of dots added.  The other papers have "overlays" by Delicious Scraps here then coloured with the colour suggestions.  The bears are from Trina Clark Lil Bears I then made the word granddaughter a gradient with PS to match the papers.
I have added the heart paper hope you like it.
