New Baby's Shoes

Soooo, this is the second card I made today, which was an order from my sister for her friend, who had a baby girl earlier in the week, so congratulations to Danielle and husband on the birth of Edie Rose, such a lovely name, I do like vintage names.

Anyway,  the only stipulation was that the card had the baby's name on it, and here is the card:

I started by heat embossing the 'new baby' sentiment stamp using versamark ink and light pink embossing powder on kraft card.  I then cut this to size and layered it onto some gauze. 

I decided against a backing paper on the textured card blank, so I added this panel straight to the card.

I had already added some pink ribbons to two corners of the card.

I then stamped a set of LOTV baby shoes using grey memento ink and coloured these with my new Inktense pencils - I keep practising with these.  I fussy cut the shows and added these to the top right-hand corner of the card.

I then die-cut 'Edie Rose'  from pink pearlescent card (the pearlescence unfortunately does not show very well in the photos) and added a pink rose.

To finish the card I added a pink ribbon.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
