The matching baby card

My sister Louise and her partner Richard are now proud Grandparents of Erica and had asked me to make her a keepsake.
I wanted to do something a bit special so I came up with a card and a matching exploding box and here it is.

Here is the matching card to go with the exploding box - see below post for details/photos of that.

I have used Cutie Pie digi papers and Cutie Pie Decoupage digi download from Pink Gem Designs for the card. I have used my Martha Stewart around the corner punch to create a lace effect on the front page before adding the baby girl image and decoupage. I added Woodware dotty pink ribbon so that the card can be tied up and I made the flowers from pink and white pearlescent paper and a petal punch.

I have left the back of the front cover with just some digi paper so that the parents can add a photo there if they so wish.

I hope they will like these items. I am entering this project into the following challenges
Pink Gem Ribbon and lace
Pile it on Punches

Thanks for looking x
