Sugar Bowl challenge card

This is my entry for the current Sugar Bowl challenge. It is a sketch challenge and also pearls needed to be included on the card, so I have used pearl brads in my flowers.

The card is for a good friend of mine who has just had her first baby - four weeks early and only 5lb!! My girls had a great time going baby present shopping!!

The image I have used is Daisy with Pram from Sugar Nellie, coloured with Staedtler pencils. I used blue handprint printed paper from Bits 'n' Pieces Baby Papers.

The cardstock was embossed with Divine Swirls and Swiss Dots embossing folders. Flowers and brads from stash - mostly Papermania. The sentiment is from a set of baby themed buttons I bought ages ago, can't remember where from!!

We're off down to Cornwall again tomorrow to visit my parents. My Dad is back out of hospital now and doing well so it will be great to see him again!! I'll be back with more cards next week. Until then - have a good weekend!!!
