New Baby

Hello, firstly sorry for such a poor picture,
I always take my pics in the daytime in the conservatory,
or if I have to take it at night I use my light tent,
 but since I've re~organised my craft room it's been put away,
Will have to set it up again!
xXx
Have uploaded another daylight picture ~ but still not great!!!
xXx
My card is actually soft, muted shades of lavender & cream.
The ribbon has been hand dyed (thanks Chris for the demo) and really doesn't look this dark!!!
Anyway ~  I have made this for my Niece who is expecting a baby girl,
I wanted to make a more vintage card that your typical pink!
I'm happy with the end result, just disappointed that parts the picture are dark!
xXx

I have used
Magnolia ~ Standing Baby
Basic Greay ~ Capella
Tim Holtz ~ Distress Inks
SU ~ Ting Tags Punch & Stamps
Retro Flower Punches
E.LM ~ Branch Punch
