Crafty Little Fairies - Starting Over

It's time for a new challenge over at the Crafty Little Fairies...and seeing as it's our first of 2014, the theme is:

'Starting Over'
(New Home/Baby/Job etc)

The sponsor this week is:

The Ribbon Girl
Prize - a £10 voucher to spend at The Ribbon Girl!

It's not actually my team's week...but I'd made a card at the weekend that was perfect for the couldn't resist playing along :0)

I've made a 'New Baby' card...and used a new stamp's by All Night Media, but doesn't have  name on it. I simply coloured the nappy pins using watercolour pencils in various pastel shades so the card is suitable for either a baby boy or a baby girl. I used my trusty Cuttlebug 'Swiss Dots' folder for the embossing...distressing the edges a little. The sentiment stamp is from a set by Art Impressions, the ribbon is the last scrap of a piece that I think came from the Ribbon Reel, and the Card Candi is by Craftwork Cards.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the Crafty Little Fairies Challenge.
