C.C. Designs Happy birthday

I borrowed this stampset from C.C. designs (surprise!) but I think I "need"it ;-) what gorgeous images.

I made this card for the Less is More Challenge : pastels and as it's Anita's birthday it's become a birthday card!.

I tried to keep the colors to a minimum and the little girl's dress was as light as the doggie and present bow, but somehow my Spectrum Noir markers were not playing nicely, and the image became patchy, splotchy, and the inks went all outside the lines, never happens to me with Neenah Solar white cardstock, that is this.
Also the Memento ink I used smudged, maybe it's the heat? I don't know...
Managed to fix it, but I'm flabbergasted.

These are the lightest colors in the Spectrum range, I hope they're pastel like enough.
