New Baby Card

Hi Folks!
Here is a card that I have been asked to make for a friend welcoming baby Ruby into the world. I followed the fabulous sketch by Rach over on Just Magnolia. I hope it's ok to enter the card to the monthly Just MagnoliaToo challenge too which is a 3D challenge set by Debby Yates. I have also followed the brown yellow and pink colour challenge over on Basic Grey. I think these colours a just right 'alternative' new baby colours.
I have used Basic grey and Daisy D papers; my Nestabilities and scalloped Nesties too; Funky foam Quickutz corners and some cream ric rac. I used my Xyron Design Runner to create the sentiments and cut the letters from funky foam using my 'Amsterdam' Go Kreate alphabet. I used Copic Markers to colour Tilda. I finished off the card with some tiny buttons.
Please excuse the 'rambled' post, I have friends and family staying this week and I feel sooo gulity snatching a few minutes to post this.
Ciao for now!
