Skin - E0000, E000, E00 and R01 for her cheeks
Blues - B02, B000, B0000
Pinks - R81 and R0000 I used the tip to tip method here to get a little extra shading
Yellows - Y19, Y11 and Y00
Background - YR0000, YR000
All the colours I used were mostly in the low numbers to get the pastel look.
The gorgeous DP is from Nitwit Collections called Bonnets & Bowties and is also digital.
Corner Dies are from Nellies, Flowers are from WOC and the lace that has been threaded with blue ribbon are from my stash.
Here is a close up of the little sweetie!
