Fussy and Fancy DT Card - More Than One Fold

It's challenge time again at Fussy and Fancy, this fortnight our theme is "More Than One Fold".  I went with a centre step card to give my sister who is expecting her first baby.  I'm so excited for her, especially as this baby has been wanted for sooo long, in fact I'm off down to Edinburgh this weekend for some girly time and a bit of shopping with my sis.  Who knows what state the house will be in when I get back, as I'm leaving the boys behind this time!
 I've used a Saturated Canary digi, coloured with a mix of Promarkers and Flexmarkers, I just love this cute and quirky image, it's such fun to colour.
The papers, sentiment, ribbon and flowers are all from a Craftwork Cards goody box, I just added a bit of texture to the flowers by spritzing them with water, scrunching them up, then, once dry, edging with Picked Raspberry Distress Ink.  I layered two flowers together, securing them with a glitter brad.  The flourishes either side of the flowers were made with a Marianne die.
To finish of my bright and cheerful card, I added some Pink card Candi, a button topped bow and three pink gems to the sentiment.
 I'm entering his card in the following challenges -
