1st Christmas Baby

I am very excited as I am going to be an aunty in September as my Sister is going to have her first baby. We think it's a girl so I have made a little Christmas card ready. If it turns out to be a Boy, well I hope he likes pink he he. Anyway here is the card:

I have used a cute little image from Bugaboo Stamps and coloured it with my Promarkers and Flexmarkers. I know it's not your usual Christmas image but that's the theme over at Catch the Bug today and I thought this image worked for any occasion. The snowflake paper is from a Dovecraft Christmas pad and the pink paper was a freebie from a magazine. I handtyped the sentiment and backed everything on silver embossed card. I have used some of the backing from my double sided tape for the pink borders. I know it would normally get thrown away but I think it gives a great border as you can still see the paper underneath. I have then added some glittery snowflake buttons with the backs cut off and some pearls.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
