Make your own background at Digi Makeover

Hello and happy Monday!
I hope you had a great weekend and are starting the new week with joy and peace.
Today I would like to show you a new card I made for our new challenge at Digi Makeover:

The challenge is: MAKE YOUR OWN BACKGROUND. Remember to use a digi to participate in our challenge.

I used Jamie the baby fairy, printed two times (mirror) and cut it out (and cut the wings too), I wanted a couple of babies for a friend who just delivered beautiful girl twins!!!!! I colored them with Koh-i-noor aquarelable pencils and used some glitter glue for the shakers, the shoes and a little bit more here and there. I used pink and lilac/purple colors for them.

To make my own background was a real challenge for me. I made many and only used two of them. The one where the images are is a aqua-green cardstock and with an old toothbrush and some acrylic paintings I made spots in different tones of pink, lilac and purple. For the second background I used a stamp (Marianne's) and with pink, lilac ad purple ink pads I stamped many times in a white cardstock. For the lilac cardstock I just used Flowers embossing folder (Sizzix). I also used pink cardstock to mat every piece in the card.

The embellishment is a gingham lilac ribbon and a bow made with it. The sentiment is by Create with TLC.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
