Lili's Little Fairies Challenge - 'Something New'

Hello!

Quick post for the last Lili's Little Fairies challenge of the year, can't believe another year's gone already! =/

The theme for this challenge is 'Something New' so I decided to go for a new baby card.
One of my oldest friend, Laura, who I've known since she was born (23 years!), and fiance, Geoff, are having a baby boy in March, well we think it's a boy, her brother Christ and his wife were told they were having a boy and had a girl so fingers crossed they've got it right!


I decided just to use the LOTV Babies Companion Set for this one, partly to avoid colouring anything and partly because I love the set! I've also used the Petal Fresh pad from LOTV as well, I think it's my favourite out of the flowery ones.
I stuck the sentiment panel and it's background on with 1mm and 2mm foam pads and did the same with the stitched star and heart which were cut out with the smallest circles in Spellbinders Standard Circles Small and Large. I then added a few buttons and I think it's come out quite well.

Hope you like it!

On a very exciting note, I've actually finished all of my Chrimble shopping, hooray! Now there's only a couple of little presents to finish making for my sister and then I can wrap everything! =D It's only taken two shopping trips too which I was very happy about because I hate going into Leeds City Centre on a quite day never mind a week before Christmas! But's it's done now so I can start feeling properly Christmassy and I'll just have to hope it doesn't snow a lot so I can get to Mum's on the 23rd!

Anywho, hope you like the card!
