I used Crumb Cake to make the card base and the lacy circle. I created my own background paper using a mixture of stamps from Stampin' Up! and Waltzingmouse. I added a touch of colour to the stars and the tiny baby elements. I cut a plain white circle, added some colour while still in the die and then embossed the dots. I finished off by added this sweet little onesie and sentiment. The ribbon was originally white but , using my Promarkers, I coloured it to match the onesie. I decorated the inside too - but kept it really simple.
For the layout I used this week's sketch at Mojo Monday - MOJO276, and I'm also submitting this card to the Moxie Fab World: 75 Creative Card Challenge to make my own background paper - MFCCC#49. This is the first time I've submitted any card to a Moxie Fab challenge - don't know why!
