Pastel Baby Card

No, your eyes don't deceive you.....not only is this card pink, but pastel pink to boot ! It's for an order I received earlier in the week so thought I would keep it simple, and I actually quite like it. I don't feel I can start distressing any thing when it's for a baby, it just doesn't seem right. I'm putting this card in for the following challenges:

The main image is a Joanna Sheen stamp which is stamped with black Memento ink and shaded with Pro Markers. I've cut it out with deckle edged Nestabilities. The background paper is a free download from Madabout Cards that I've had for ages. I've then used the small flower stamp from the Stampin' Up set Baroque Motifs, and stamped with a Brilliance ink. The horizontal piece has been punched with a Martha Stewart border punch.

The sentiment is done on the PC and then cut out with a Fancy Tag and some more of the Brilliance Ink has been sponged over it before removing the die. The flowers are a Woodware punch.
What a lovely feeling, we've broken up now until Tuesday ! It's a pity the weather forecast is so awful but at least I don't have to get up at silly o'clock in the morning.
Thanks for looking
