Congratulations on your good news Francesca, or should I say Grandma...lol. A lovely card, and a great Melinda image, gorgeous papers and your doily punch used on the bottom looks good, and even better on the flowers, definitely gives them a different look. It's a beautiful card.
Thank you for participating in the "Stampin' for the Weekend" challenge again this week.. Good luck and we hope you'll continue to join in on the challenges on a weekly basis. Have a great day.

This a lovely card, super colour combo. But what about this fabulous news, congratulations. I have five grandchildren and it's wonderful - even if a bit expensive - we are taking all five on holiday shortly (mad you wonder - most probably).
