A card for my niece

My niece is expecting a baby girl within the next few weeks. It was always a surprise in my day!
I made this card for her, with this dear little ted arriving by balloon. I think she feels a bit like a balloon at the moment.
He's another digi download from Cuddly Buddly, as are the papers which are Fairy Fun - peach. They are such a pretty shade.
The sentiment is also a CB product, but this is from a rubber stamp. I embossed the white sections of the card with two different Cuttlebug folders and embellished it with the central punched band, a ribbon and a heart charm.
As Papertake's challenge this week is entitled Cutie Pie... I couldn't resist!
You may have remembered seeing my post about meeting Cyprus Anne the other week... well her blog is now up and running, so do go and give her a visit and give her a big welcome to Blogland! You can find her here.
