New Baby Card

Time is precious so I decided to combine some of the challenge
Hope this it ok?
Simon Says Challenge is Vintage with Flowers
I have never really done a vintage card so went with vintage colours
The flowers are all from my stash
Cute Card Thursday - Ribbon-Tastic
The ribbons I have used are from the Do-Crafts Goodie Bag
Secret Crafter - Stitching
I have used faux stitching on each piece of the card
drawn in using my Letraset Tria Pens
Came up with this wonderful sketch that I have followed
Dotties World - DeStress with some Distressing
Again like the vintage theme I do not normally do distressing
so did some (neat) tearing hope this counts
The image is Dottie & George from the Love & Marriage Collection
I am quite pleased with the outcome of this card
as its different to the normal baby cards I do
Thanks to all the challenge sites for the inspiration
