Cute as a Button

Since I got my new printer a couple of weeks ago I've been totally hooked on the sweet "ready-to-use" images over at Nicecrane Designs. I was asked to make a baby card for a girl, and I chose an image from the Bessie Gutman Pack, you can find it here.
The theme over at HoC is cute or shabby/vintage with buttons, so I added a couple of those, after all this baby is "cute as a button".
I added flowers from Storyteller and white string. For texture I used cheesecloth and corrugated paper sprinkled with frantage.
I heat embossed the sentiment with pink EP on vellum, the stamp is from Kaisercraft.
The pink DP I used as background is from Prima, it came free with a magazine. I stitched with gold metallic thread around the edges and mounted it onto kraft.

This card is for these challenges:
1) House of Cards - Cute and/or Shabby + Button
2) Fairy Tale - #88 Baby
3) Make My Monday - Babies
4) Shopping Our Stash - #133 3-2-1 (3 flowers+2 buttons+1 image)
5) Penny's Paper-Crafty - #167 Anything but Square
6) Make it Monday - Anything Goes
