New baby card and a challenge to boot!

Hello everyone!
I have been VERY busy with commissions just lately. If anyone watched the launch of the Christmas Popcorn the Bear sets on Create & Craft tonight, you'll see what I've been up to!
This baby card is for my cousin and her husband in Germany, who have just had their first baby. I have taken design inspiration from the challenge on the Funky Hand challenge blog for August, so I decided to enter this card for the challenge!
The spotty & the striped papers are both from the V.Funky CD ROM and I have used the same two papers to punch out some of the flowers.
The Popcorn image is actually taken from the new christmas range, but it works extremely well as a new baby image too!
Wish me luck for my first challenge attempt!!

  3. Gorgeous the glimmery flowers.

  4. Thank you for joining in on our first monthly challenge at Get Funky! Your card is delightful and you're right the popcorn image is perfect for a baby card. See a good crafter can see past just what the item is 'supposed' to be for and make it work for anything.
