New Grandson Card

I made this card for friend that had their first grandchild yesterday.

I have made a white 8x8in easel card. I have matt and layered the top and bottom of my card with blue card and half of the top and bottom with white embossed card. I embossed the white card with a Tattered Lace embossing folder. I added hessian ribbon and blue ribbon down the centre of my card. I die cut the large bib with a Marianne die and added the new baby's name with letters cut with a Xcut die. I attached this to my card with foam pads so it will act as a stopper for the top. I die cut the vest with small bib using Sue Wilson dies. I attached three small flat backed pearls where the poppers would be on a baby vest. I printed personalised sentiments and die cut the sentiment on the top using a Presscut oval die and die cut the next size in the nesting set in blue card to mount the sentiment. I die cut the sentiment on the bottom of the card with a nesting set from The Works.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
