Welcome little lady

My husbands niece had a little baby girl at the weekend, making me a Great Aunt for the third time - although no-one dare call me that - the nieces and nephews aren't much younger than me, so it feels odd for them to call me Auntie, so they only call it me to tease me!  To their kids, I'll be Auntie, that feels much better ;-)

They were told they were having a girl, so I had some bits and pieces put aside to make the card, but I didn't want to temp fate and make it before we knew for certain.  Hopefully they received it yesterday so it should be safe to blog it now:


The baby image is a real cutie from Magnolia - just love the frilly knickers!  I coloured her wtih copics, cut with a nestie and mounted on some bo bunny dots with a couple of sentiments.  It's not obvious from the photo (tried several shots but couldn't get it to show up clearly) but the white layer is a DCWV card front with "Baby" embossed all over it.  I added some lovely sheer ribbon, a pearly heart pin, some pink flowers with pearl centres and popped it on a couple of layers of DP, the final layer cut with MS PATP loops punch set.  It's and 8x8 inch card overall.

I'm entering the following challenges with it:
