Vintage new baby card and Leibster Blog award

Having made a 'new baby' card for my nephew, I thought I should probably get on with making one for my brother and sister-in-law!!

I wanted to create something a bit different for them. They're having a little girl, but they're not into the whole 'pink and blue' thing and so I wanted to get away from all of that stuff but still keep it feminine.
I searched "Vintage baby card" on google for ideas and saw this card and totally fell in love!

Here is my take...

What do you think?

I'm entering for the following challenges:
Allsorts challenge - It's your choice
Crafter's Companion - Anything Goes

I'd also like to say a HUGE thanks to the lovely Loz of Lozadoodle's blog for nominating me for a Leibster Blog Award which is very exciting :)

The idea of the Liebster Blog Award is to spread the love from one small blog (under 200 followers) to other small blogs.
This helps to spread knowledge and readership.
To accept the award, you must:
1) Link back to the person who gave it and thank them for thinking of you.
2) Post the award to your blog.
3) Give the award to 5 bloggers (with less than 200 followers) that you appreciate and value.
4) Leave a comment on the blogs of the five people you have chosen to let them know. 
"Liebster" in German means "dearest", so to carry on the Liebster tradition, I am going to pass the award on to 5 others who I love to visit!

So, if you haven't already then pop over to Loz's blog to see her gorgeous cards, and in no particular order... here are the blogs I'd like to nominate :)

Cathy Fong from Fong's Crafty Place
Gillian from Made With Sparkle
Rach from Mike's Gal
Sue from Sue The Iron
Hettie from Hettiecraft

Now to pop over to their blogs and let them know!
