My first baby card in ages

I decided to make a baby girl card today, my stepmother Brenda's Son Jason and his Girlfriend are having a little girl in a few weeks time so I thought I should get something made up ready to put in the post when the little bundle of joy arrives.

The card is 14.5cm x 14.5cm I have used 2 backing papers from the Forever Friends 6 x 6 Hugs and Cuddles pad, one with a pink gingham pattern and the other just has buttons on it. I have also added some pink card that I have embossed with a Cuttlebug folder. The image is a Pink Gem Designs rubber stamp which I have coloured with Promarkers. The ribbon is from my craft stash and the buttons are from my local 99p store. I have computer generated the circle sentiment and backed this onto a scalloped circle cut with my nesties. I added gems on the ribbon which are made by Anita's. I have faux stitches around the image.

I am able to enter this card into 6 different challenges this week
1/ Sketch Saturday - I followed their sketch
2/ Cupcake Crafting with their theme Buttons and stitching
3/ Die Cut Dreams with their theme Babies
4/ TCP with their theme Buttons
5/ Creative Inspirations with their theme Family
6/ Paperplay with their theme use your favourite embellishment

Thanks for looking, Have a good weekend everyone x
