Baby Congratulations

I was asked to make this baby congratulations card for some clients at work, who have just had their first baby - a girl, in case the colour doesn't give it away!  I have had the pram stamp for years, don't think I've used it more than once before.  I stamped it on that scrummy TSS pink metal and refined/embossed it (I think I'm getting the hang of it a bit now!) and stamped the balloons (Paperbag Studios) using fired brick distress, added glitter to te balloons, although it doesn't show up so well on screen, and the 'congratulations' to the card.  Made a tape sandwich for the pram and added it to the card.
