Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - For a Baby

It's Francesca's turn this week to choose the theme of the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge, and she has chosen:

'For a Baby'

As it's the last challenge of the month, it's your last chance to be included for the draw for the prize from our fabulous sponsor The Stamping Boutique.

I've used an adorable Penny Black image on my card called 'In a Nutshell'...just perfect for a new baby card...which I coloured using watercolour pencils, then cut out and mounted on to circles cut using my Nesties (available here at the Secret Crafter). I used three different Cuttlebug folders to emboss the background - 'Swiss Dots', 'D'Vine Swirls' and 'Kassie's Brcoade' (available here at the Secret Crafter). I used my EK Success 'Scalloped Diamonds' punch for the border, and added a some spotty ribbon (from Hobbycraft) and Card Candi. The flowers were cut using a die from the Cuttlebug 'Olivia' alphabet set, and I added small adhesive pearls (available here at the Secret Crafter) to their centres.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
