Anything Goes DT card - CH #74 - Make your own backgrounds

It's challenge time again at Anything goes
The theme this time is make your own backgrounds


I decided to make a Baby card using a Magnolia stamp called Tilda in Bunny slippers, I have coloured her in with Promarkers and added some GD, used my x-cut dies to cut her out then hand stitched around the edge and added the pearl and button. My background was created using a catslife press alphabet stamp, stamped onto whit CS and matted to some pink CS, The border was created with a MS star punch, I added some heart organza ribbon tied in a bow, a doily, the crochet flower is hand made by me as is the pins, I added some mulberry flowers and pearls. The top left sentiment is also catslife press, the bottom left is from Pink petticoat and the bottom right is from my stash.

I do hope you can join us and don't forget you can get all your craft essentials from the lovely Lynne at the Craft Den

I am entering my card in to the following challenge
