Baby Card with "Little Pull Duck"

I know a few women who are all expecting baby girls one of these days, so I made this card to welcome one of the little ones.
I used an image from Meljen's Designs called "Little Pull Duck" - you can find it here. I colored it using Promakers.
As for the colors I was inspired by Meljen's challenge of "sequin colors" and pastels.
My DPs are from Authentique. I used an embossing folder to make the quilted look of the background paper.
I added a piece of lace, a ribbon bow and a metal charm. I have stitched around two of the panels, mounted them and the duck on foam for a bit of dimension.

The blue ribbon on a predominantly pink card is a stroke of genius! Really tones it down and draws the eye to the cutest pacifier charm. Conceptually intelligent card, Pia! But I know it comes naturally to you! :-)
