Babies are Sweet!

I needed to make a baby card recently, so I'm entering this into the House Mouse challenge #71 where they're going sweet. I know most folks think of sugary treats and candy when it comes to sweet, but babies are sweet too, right?!
This was a stamped image my friend Heidi sent to me a while ago, so all I had to do was color and embellish it. I colored it with Tombows and a damp brush, and layered it with Pink Pirouette. I was hoarding one precious piece of that beautiful pink cardstock, but now that SU! is bringing that color back again, I felt safe cutting into it for this card :) The quilted DP is from an unknown pack of DP from the $1 store. The sentiment is from a $1 G studio stamp set and was also colored in with Tombows. The ribbon and safety pin were from my stash. I added some white glaze pen to the baby blocks for interest.
Thanks for stopping by on this Tuesday and I wish you a happy day!
