Needles and pins - Allsorts DT Wk138

Hello everyone,
I'm really late with my 
card today, but better late than never! 
The challenge, chosen this week by our lovely Jo is
Needles and Pins.

This theme made me think of safety pins so I made a baby card.
The safety pin holds some mini SU tags with 'hello baby' sentiment and two baby shoe charms. I ruffled the ribbon and stuck a sparkly button to the centre of the bow.
The card shape is Go Kreate die. Papers are Magnolia Sweet Rainbow Pink Plaid, BG Hopscotch and My Minds Eye Kraft Funday Everyday and the layers are shaped with Nesties lacey circles and Labels 23. The cotton scrim I popped under the layers was given to me by my lovely friend Fleur (thanks hun x)
The cute Greetings Farm image called Snuggle is coloured with TH DI's and her dress, hairbows and bunny are paper pieced.

The outer layers are paper pierced and randomly stitched using embroidery thread.
The big pink flower was part of the prize I was lucky enough to have won from TOMIC and the turquoise flower is made from a Marianne Creatable die.

I kept the inside CAS :

As I was finishing this card I thought I could have made a pin cushion to follow the theme too but it was too late by then, that's one for the future, watch this space Lol! Maybe someone will have time to make one and enter our challenge with it.....

Please pop over to the Allsorts blog for all the details of the challenge and prizes up for grabs, where the rest of the DT have some gorgeous creations for you.
Have a lovely weekend, and I look forward to getting round a few blogs this week....
