Magnolia Down Under Challenges - Shabby Baby Shower!!!

 Woohoo!!!!  Surprise!!!!!  Happy Baby Shower Louise!!!!!!!!!!  
Woohoo!!!  We have an extra special challenge this week - a baby shower for our gorgeous friend and Magnolia Down Under Challenge team mate, Louise who is due to have her baby girl any day now!!  I have used the gorgeous sketch at Crafting Life's Pieces challenge for my new baby card.
I stamped the gorgeous little Tilda's Family #251 with part of the Bride and Bridesmaid #3051 from the wedding collection to create Louise's family once her baby arrives :).  I'm so pleased how it turned out as the little girl is perfectly sized for Mum and Dad!
The gorgeous ribbon is from The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop and the lace is from my stash.  I've sewn all the edges and inked them with victorian velvet distress ink.
The sentiment was cut from one of the backing papers and I have added some flowers from my stash.  The twine is also from The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop and the crochet flower is from The Hobby House.
I have decorated the inside with the same paper as the front.
I hope you like it - especially you Louise ;) and I've inspired you to join us this week for our special challenge!  Pop over the the blog to see the rest of the team's gorgeous cards and gifts!  Thanks for looking! x

Oh my sweet lord, this is stunning! I just love the image, and such a great idea to put in a sibling with the family, it can be hard to get a new baby in the family so I think its nice to include the other siblings like that. Fantastic coloring!
I love the bow, lace and pink colors.

Thanks for joining us at CLP!
Hugs, Anne.
