A new baby card

Here's a card made with the beautiful 'Willow holding baby' stamp from Whiff of Joy, I don't often make baby cards but I fell in love with this stamp and the sketch over at Whiff of Joy challenge blog

Willow is coloured with promarkers as usual and I stamped swirls around the edge with cream pigment ink and embossed with clear EP before distressing with spun sugar and victorian velvet distress inks. The pink gingham and teddy bps are from Joanna Sheen, the cream embossed card is from Hunky Dory and the corners were cut on my cricut. I added a gorgeous sentiment (a freebie from Sentimental Sunday), pink velvet ribbon, lace, star stickers and some roses from Wild Orchid Crafts to finish off.

I'm entering Willow in the following challenges:
Whiff of Joy: Sketch
Sentimental Sunday: Baby plus sentiment
The Shabby Tea Room: Shabby Chic Baby plus fabric (I hope my ribbon and lace count)
Alphabet Challenge: I is for Infants
Incy wincy: Distressing
Sew Many Challenges: New things
