The One Stop Craft Challenge # 177 DT card-Pastels and a die cut

Good Morning! Before I get into this post I want to share a picture! She is here! My first Granddaughter made her way into the world yesterday! Avery Elizabeth is her name!
Now it is time for another One Stop Craft Challenge! We are sponsored this week by Heather Ellis and Crimson Cloud so we will have to winners with prizes from our sponsors. Heather Ellis gave the Design Team some images to play with. Here is an image for inspiration.
Here is my card.
I printed this cute image on white, yellow and pink papers and then I pieced them together and colored the rest with Copic markers. The blue panel was run through the Swiss Dot embossing folder and the punch is Martha Stewart. The die cuts that I used is the yellow panel cut by Spellbinders, the flower and leaves and butterflies are Quikuts cut with the Cuttlebug. I added pearls to the centers of the butterflies. Check out The One Stop Craft Challenge, by fellow Design Team members have created some awesome projects! I am also entering this card in the following challenges:
Mojo Mondays #235 
Papertake Weekly-Anything Goes
Tuesday Throwdown #97  Pastels
Now going to the hospital to see Avery! Thanks for stopping by!

  4. Congrats on the sweet new granddaughter. There is nothing better! Great spring card. I like the way the scalloped circle is almost peeping from behind the chicks. Thanks for joining in the Tuesday Throwdown this week.
