Two Peas in a Pod

Well, as promised, today I have the card I made for my folks to give my Son and Daughter In Law on the birth of the twins.  I'd like to thank all you lovely peeps that left comments on my previous post and on the post announcing their arrival - they are very much appreciated, as all your comments are :)
Simon Says Challenge has a Happy Birthday theme, this card is for a Birth-day (it was given when the bubs were only four hours old!) so I'm entering there.  I used one of the lovely new-ish Sweet November Sleeping Baby Fairies (Phew!) digistamps from All That Scraps, there's three in the set; this is "pea" and I've added the mirror image before printing (I love digis!) to make my "two peas in a pod".  Crafty Creations has Flowers or Fairies so I'm entering my baby fairies there, Aud Sentiments challenge is For a Child, so in there too and Gem of a Challenge has Make it Cute - I think it's cute, so in there too :)
I've coloured with Copics and Prismacolor pencils, embossing with iridescent EP around the edges of the image panel, the sentiment is computer generated. Catch the Bug has Anything Goes with Cardstock + Bling, so I'm entering those.  Totally Gorjuss has Something Blue, so I'm in there too :)
The image mat is cut with Nestabilities Lacey Squares. The papers, including the die cut borders, are from Kaiser's Lullaby pad.  This is the first time I've used the white lace/mesh fabric "stuff" that I got from Mulberry Crafts, I just felt that the card needed something to "soften" it, this worked a treat.  The ribbon, pearls and little hearts (white, coloured with Copics) are from my stash. Oozak has Anything Goes with Pearls Lace and Ribbon, I don't have a lot of each, but they're there so I'm in!
The sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday is a beauty... as usual!  I followed it for the inside of the card too!  Papertake Weekly has an Anything Goes challenge so I'm entering.
Well that's about it for today's card, very simple but quite sweet - my Mum doesn't like heavily embellished cards so she loved it, and was pleased to hand it over to her new Great Grandies ;)
The twins are coming home from hospital tomorrow (or later today, as it's past midnight!) so we may get to visit them at home over the weekend - and I can start catching up on all the cuddles we couldn't get when they were unwell!
I'll be back on Sunday with a DT card for Here Come The Boys... there's still time to enter our fab photo inspiration challenge - or I'll see you for the new challenge on Sunday.  
Until then, Happy Crafting, Donna
