New Baby Girl Easel Card - Congratulations

Hello bloggers for today's card I have made a new baby card for a girl.

This card began as an A6 card blank, I scored the front in half portrait to make an easel card.  To the front I adhered some pink gingham card and to the base of the card I adhered some pink glitter card.  On the base I adhered some strips of ribbon down each side edge with red line tape (strong stuff).  Next using silicone glue I adhered the three pram shaped buttons across the bottom front to form the easel card stopper.  A metal 'Congratulations' sentiment was also added to the base and attached with silicone glue.  Back to the top of the card I cut a mat of white card stock and onto that I stamped my sentiment 'New baby' using 'tattered rose' distress ink. The stamp set used on this card was a free one from a magazine.  Next I stamped the pram outline using 'Victorian velvet' distress ink.  Then I embossed and stencilled the pin, bottle, rattle and dummy images down the side using alternate inks of 'tattered rose' and 'Victorian velvet' and a metal stencil I had.  I tied some pink satin ribbon around the topper and then adhered it to the card top.  Finally I adhered two felt flowers to the card topper.
