A Special Day!

The challenge over at Pollycraft this week (#80) is SPECIAL BIRTHDAYS, and it just so happens that a friend of mine became a Grandma today, and gave me the perfect opportunity to make a card and enter the challenge at the same time!

Here's my card:

I followed this week's Sketch Saturday sketch (week 142), so am also entering that challenge too!

 The image is a freebie called 'baby Roger' by Helen Laurence and can be found on her 'Ellephantastic blog' here. I coloured him with Promarkers and cut him with my lacey circle nesties. He is mounted onto pink glittercard, with tiny pink gems.

 There is a pink gingham bp, glittercard, grosgrain and organza ribbon, layered according to the sketch, and the sentiments are computer generated using Cool Dots font, one cut using a nestie, the other on the guillotine. As you can see, little Heidi arrived today, weighing 5lbs 15ozs. 

I also added some flower buttons, which I filled with Stickles in an upturned Card Candy dot!

Finally I added some flat-backed pearls, a die-cut photo corner and inked the edges to finish.

I would also like to enter the following challenges:
Thanks for looking!
