Challenge number 33 at Creative Inspirations.

Hello everyone,
Oh boy do these weeks fly by or what.  I think I must be getting old - time seems to go soooo quickly these days.
So, it's Sunday again and time for another challenge at Creative Inspirations.  I must say the entries for the last challenge were beautiful.  Remember to hop over to the Creative Inspirations Challenge blog and see if you were the lucky winner.
For this new challenge we would like you to make a Congratulations card.  It can be for any time of celebration, i.e. Wedding Day, Engagement, New Baby, New Home - the decision is entirely yours.  Just remember to follow the brief and please make sure your link is to the blog post and not to your blog in general.
So, here is the card I made for this challenge:
As you can see it is a congratulations card for 1st time Grandparents.  This was a card I was asked to make by a work colleague and I thought it fitted in with our brief perfectly. 
I have used an image called Vintage Baby from Sugar Nellie and have coloured it in with my promarkers and watercolour pencils.  I stamped the image onto a white die cut and layered it onto a soft pastel blue die cut available at Die Cut Dreams, which my good friend Susie sent me recently, thanks Susie!
The two DP I have used come from a papermania pack called Venetian Skies and these have been matted onto blue card.  The sentiment was printed on the computer onto lighter blue card and again this was matted on to the darker blue card.  I placed a ribbon across the middle which says "tiny hands and tiny feet" but I don't think you can quite see all the words!
I added some small blue gems at the bottom left, three buttons top right, one brad on the sentiment piece and a ribbon/pearl on the bottom right of the card as these were all elements on the sketch I followed which was a past one at Sketchy Colours and I have shown it below for reference only:
 I will also enter this card into the challenges at:

Hope you like my card and remember to visit the rest of the DT's blogs and have a look at what they have created - links in my sidebar.
