Busting open the Graphic 45 again

When I went to Ally Pally a pad of Graphic 45 'Little Darlings' managed to sneak into my basket......time to start using it.....after too long just admiring it!!!
I see a lot of quite grungy Graphic 45 creations.....and I love them......but they're not really my style.....and these papers are just perfect for a more layered vintage feel......I sometimes get asked for baby cards......so I've made a few that remind me of those lovely old fashioned ones.
Here's the first one......using the sketch on The Crazy Challenge
All the papers are from the pad.......I made the flowers with some hessian lace.....and 3 gems to finish off.
I've been joining in the wonderful 'organising weekend' at Jennifer's Jumbles.......she posted on how she organised her submissions to challenges,design teams etc. and challenged us to enter one......so I'm linking back to her.....and entering a few challenges.
Charisma Cardz,Creative Inspirations and Love to Create want 'anything goes'.......Southern Girls want 'baby'........and Crafty Cardmakers want 'make your own flowers'.
And last.....but by no means least.....a big thank you to everybody who sent me birthday wishes on my blog or Facebook......I'll be posting soon about one fantabulous birthday present!!!

The baby on your card is adorable! I also like how you mat the patterned paper because it gives it a nice finished look. Beautiful card.

What a beautiful card :) I like many of the Graphic 45 papers but they aren't really my style, I see so many many layered and embellished cards with their papers, thanks for showing they can be used beautifully in a non traditional G45 way
