Make something cute

I've decided to join in Pindy's challenge #26 - Make Something Cute. I was hoping to make the same card - one baby boy and one baby girl, but time got the better of me, and I only managed to get one finished. In true "me" style, I'm entering this challenge last minute.

I've used a Phindy's Place image - Nap time. I thought it would be great for either baby body, baby girl or gender non-specific.
I thought the "Oh Baby" sentiment on the card would be quite cute. I seem to using a lot of naturals in my cards the last few days - favouring browns... But I liked the different use of paper - layering and tearing.
I added a few pearls for little bit of something and the stitching was done as an afterthought - the card was lacking in something still. I think it finished it off nicely.
Well off to enter the challenge. Hopefully I can post the baby girl card later...
Love Mel
