Sweet as a Peach

Happy easter everyone. Hope you're all having a nice start to the bank holiday weekend and enjoying the gorgous weather (those of you in the UK)

For a change I thought I would make a baby card and rather than use pink I decided on peach. The image is Saturated Canary 'butterfly baby' coloured with Promarkers and matted onto a crochet edged circle. The gingham paper is My Mind's Eye 'lost and found' and the other is from my loose sheets so not sure where from. I used Memory Box 'twirling vine frame' die and for the flowers Cheery Lynn large, medium and miniature rose dies and a daisy punch. The pearls, lace and ribbon are all from my stash and the sentiment stamp was a magazine freebie.

I shall enter this in the following challenges ~
Sketch N Stash challenge 'Sketch' (the peach ribbon is definitely neglected)
Divas By Design challenge 'Bundle of joy'
Crafty Catz challenge 'B is for...' (baby, bow)
Creative Inspiration challenge 'Lots of layers'
Country View challenges 'New beginnings'
Crafty Cardmakers challenge 'Handmade flowers'
Fussy and Fancy challenge 'Pearls and lace'

Thanks for popping by and for all your lovely comments.

Lovely soft colour choice, which suits the image so well. Those pretty little flowers are lovely and the pretty diecut and the crochet edged circle really finish it off.
