Chocolate & Cream Delight

Good morning. It's an early start for me this morning as I am sitting awaiting the news of the safe arrival of 'baby pink' - as we have fondly named her until Katy decides what name she likes best. For those of you that read my blog regularly you will know that I became a Grandma for the first time 6 weeks ago to Oliver - my middle son Aaron's first child and that my eldest son Jamie is also going to be a Dad and it looks like it could be today :-) so I will be a Grandma for the second time to a beautiful 'baby pink'! Watch this space for further news :-)
So what better to do than have a play in my little crafty haven whilst waiting!

I took inspiration for my card from the following challenges:

Colour Create - White Cream & Brown
Crafty Emma's - Embellish It
Crafty Catz - Anything Goes
Fairy Knoll - Flowers

So here's what I used:
Image: PB Betsy Bluebell
Colouring Medium - Promarkers
Background created with Cricut Expression - Straight form the Nest cartridge
Ribbon and button from stash
Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts

Thanks for popping by.
Hope to be back soon with news of 'baby pink'
Have a fabulous day.
