"The moment a child is born..." baby card

Hello Crafters!

A friend of mine and his wife are expecting their first child in a couple of weeks.  They will be the most amazing and wonderful parents!  It seemed fitting to use the stamp set from Quietfire "The moment a child is born".  
The card was made as follows from the base up: pink tent fold, white Cheery Lynn Dutch Scallop, pink Cheery Lynn French Pastry, white Cheery Lynn Two of Hearts (clear Distress Crackle was applied to the heart) and then the heat embossed sentiment cut by hand as shown.  All edges were distressed using Antique Linen and Vintage Photo.  The flowers were from my stash and the pink seam binding was dyed using Distress Stain in Spun Sugar.
Don't the doilies look so sweet stacked on this baby card?  It's funny, I never noticed how well the two bottom dies go together.  You will see this combo again.  :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great day!
