New Baby, New Beginnings

Good morning, everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful New Year's holiday and didn't party too hard! I had a nice relaxing evening at home and did my favorite thing - Crafting!

I'm here to tell you about our new challenge this fortnight at Daisy Doodles. Since its a new year, its only fitting that we start out off with the theme of New Beginnings. We want to see projects that celebrate new beginnings.. weddings, having a baby.. even divorces! Anything that is considered a new beginning, will work! There's a wonderful prize of digi images up for grabs for one lucky winner! Come on over to Daisy Doodles and play along with us! You have two who weeks to enter!

I decided to go with a new baby card, for our New Beginnings theme. My card layout follows the Sketch at Card Patterns. I'm using the bottle and rattle from the Baby Stuff set, by Daisy Doodles. The images are colored with Promarkers. My papers are new, from the DCWV Baby Stack that I got for Christmas from Santa! The buttons is from my stash. I've attached the images with foam mounting tape for dimension.

I am entering this card in the following Challenges:
