Welcome Baby Poppy

A girl who works with my husband has just had her second child, a wee girl called Poppy.  Here's the card I've made to celebrate the happy arrival.
 I made a centre step card using Lili of the Valley, Bear Necessities papers and stamp, which I coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers, highlighting the bubbles with Star Dust Stickles.
I added faux stitching with a brown fineliner to add to the patchwork feel of the papers.
The bunting was made with a Stampin' Up punch, with stamped letters, punched out with a small circle punch.  The lace border was made with a Martha Stewart punch and the flowers were made with Nellie Snellen punches.
To finish off, I added a stamped sentiment, buttons and a swirl of pale pink pearls.
 I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
