Abbey's birth card

We wanted to send a little gift to our new grandchild today so it was time to make her her first card! I enjoyed doing this though I had to make the face three times. Simpler is better - I was trying to be too detailed!!
I used Stampin' Up! card stock from the Soft Subtles range. I punched out the flowers and circles, hand cut and shaded the arm, cut the blanket from a circle template, embellished with silver and black and pink, and added lace, buttons, oh and the background is SU!s' Canvas stamp in Versamark.
It's going to be great to get to see her in real life - only about 13 days to go!!!
