New Baby

Hey, made this card today as we are expecting a baby in our family!!! It's going to be a girl and thought I'd better make the card as she is already 2 days overdue...can't wait :) :) :)
I stamped the Forever Friends image at a friend's house and coloured it using promarkers. I edged the image with Vivid raspberry ink.
I chose a pale pink paper to back the card and edged this in raspberry too. I chose pink and yellow papers to back the image with. I then stamped 'Congratulations' and 'New baby' onto white paper and backed them with pink spotty paper. I then put 'Congratulations' onto the bottom of the image and put 'New baby' across the top corner. I chose pink and yellow flowers to match the colour scheme and added small buttons in the centres. To finish, I cut two Tim Holtz Alterations Elegant Flourishes and inked them with Brilliance pearl orchid and sunflower yellow inks; I raised these up edging them onto the image. Lovely :) she needs to arrive!!!!
