Allsorts DT call/Baby card

Happy Summer to all in blogland!
Summer seems to have landed with the start of June, we took the kids to Burghley Gardens of Surprise yesterday and I got sunburnt, ouch!!
The card I have made to show you today is for my friend who had a baby on Tuesday, Sophia was a week over due and Sally was very relieved when she finally made an appearance!
The fantastic challenge blog, Allsorts, are having a DT call the next couple of weeks and although I don't stand much chance I thought I would enter for it. (I don't have much luck with DT calls as a rule but nothing ventured, nothing gained!) Maybe they're all trying to tell me something lol!!

The image, a Mo Manning stamp called Baby Fairy Flora, I played around with and tried to do a pyramage with. It's an abbreviated pyramage because I didn't cut the middle image out right. Don't know if it works but I've left it on!
I tore the corners back and decorated with buttons and gems. The pink cardstock was run through a Craft Concepts In bloom embossing folder.The flower arrangement is supposed to be a bouquet with the stems hidden within a folded back piece of card, hope that what it looks like anyway!

I used a corner photo punch on the inside left for the proud parents to display a piccie and the sentiment, which I borrowed from my mum, is silver heat embossed.

Other supplies: Go Kreate card die
SU sentiment and scallop (front of card)
Nesties label 9 and Shapeabilities Foliage
TH Distress inks
Silver gel pen
flowers, buttons, ribbons, brads and gems from stash

Another stunning piece of work Nicola and it's lovely when peeps take the time to decorate the inside as well, it makes a beautifully rounded piece.
