Sweet baby

Welcome to another ALLSORTS challenge,
Thank you for entering Deb's Summer Days challenge ~ WOW there were loads of fab summery cards.
This week it's Amanda's turn, and she would like to see a card for a baby or child. 
I really struggled as I don't really do pastel shades,
 but really wanted to a card for a baby girl as my niece is expecting a little girl.
The card layout was a bit of an accident, as I stamped stars all over the cardstock & really didn't like it, so I layered it up in the same colour and was quite pleased with the result.
I've let it quite simple too
I have used:
Sugar Nellie ~ Baby Rabbit
NitWit Paper
Martha Stewart ~ Pinking Edge Border
Nestabilities ~ Ovals & Scallop Ovals
Faux Stitching
Water-coloured ~ Distress Inks
Brads From Stash
Don't forget to enter our Penny Black at ALLSORTS monthly challenge, where there's some awesome prizes.
Thanks for looking
