Welcome Baby: Freshly Made Sketch #244, Addicted to Stamps and More! #201 and #MFT

Happy Saturday!
I finally got around to getting a card finished for my future great-niece's birth soon.  I am so happy for my brother-in-law and sister-in-law!  They will make awesome grandparents.  I needed a little jumpstart in my creative process so I looked for a few challenges to get me started.  I knew what stamp set I wanted to use so I just had to find a sketch that would work with what I had in mind.  My niece's husband loves pandas so the stamp choice was easy.  I decided that the Freshly Made Sketch #244 challenge would work.  I just flipped the oval so the "greeting" was on top of the oval.  I also decided to enter this card into the Addicted to Stamps and More! Challenge #201 since it was an "anything goes" challenge.  Here is the sketch from Freshly Made with the link:

As for the card itself, I stayed pretty true to the sketch only flipping the sentiment to the top of the oval.  I stamped and die cut the pandas, banner, and balloon( with black ink(#CTMH and Momento).  I colored the banner and balloon(#Copics and CTMH) before attaching to card.  The middle panda is attached with pop dots. I added the baby's name with stamps(Stampendous) with ink matching the balloon(CTMH). Added a little bow with ribbon(CTMH) to Olivia's head and addes some sequins(CTMH).  I then decided for one more detail to add a reflection to the balloon with a white gel pen.  And there you have it!  Can't wait for baby Olivia to arrive.  
Thanks for stopping by,
