Lace and Flowers for a Baby Boy

I've used the Cardabilities sketch as inspiration for the layout.
The image I cut out from a Graphic45 DP. I layered it onto a die cut frame and added 3 flowers and  die cut leaves (Spellbinder), then I attached this onto a Marianne die cut clock. I added lace and two hand cut banners and placed a heat embossed sentiment on one of them. The blue and white DP is from Marianne design. I distressed the edges with Old Paper Distress Ink and I machine stitched around the edges. I did the same thing with the swirl embossed grey background paper. I finished off my card by adding a card candy in each corner.

Today I will spend my day indoors, crafting and visiting your blogs as it seems like we're going to have nothing but a grey sky and some rain. This week I've visited my family, and I got my birthday presents - gift certificates and money for crafting goodies! So yesterday I spent half a day in a big crafting shop just outside Oslo, and I look forward to sitting down with all my new stuff!

I enter this card in these challenges:
1) Cardabilities - Sketch #78
2) Ooh La La Creations - Welcome Little One
3) Eclectic Ellapu - Time
4) Crafty Creations Challenges - #229 Babies
5) Crafting with Dragonflies - Vintage Card with Layers and Lace
