A Sketch For Baby

My friend's daughter is expecting a baby very soon now.  Our two daughters went to school together, so this is making me feel a bit old, but I love having an excuse to make a baby card. I used this week's sketch from CAS Colours and Sketches challenge blog but flipped it around

and made this little card
I sponged the oval 'pond' and stamped the little duck from Easy Events onto white, orange and pink card and then paper pieced the little guy together.  The buttons are from my Sweet Buttons embosslits dies and I've threaded some paper twine through them. I stamped on the little sentiment from the same stamp and then added the oval, onto which I had popped up the duckling and the umbrella on dimensionals. lots of white space to keep it clean and simple. Here's a close up

I think this card will be perfect for the CAS challenge at Addicted To stamps too.  By the way, we do 'know' that it's going to be a little girl, so I should be OK with my colour choice, if not I will have to change the buttons to blue ones!
