Baby Card for Challenges; see post

Hi there, hope you are all well. I made a bunch of cards yesterdayand found that I really liked this style of card. I have taken my inspiration from a scrapbook page and used the elements as I would have on that page, except without the photo.
For the background I used a digi paper from Raspberry Road, let me know if you want more details, I will dig it up for you. The Baby girl and wings are also from RR and are a jpeg file. Then added the onesie die, and the cute little bird die that also comes with leaves and a birdhouse from poppystamps. The frill and buttons on the onesie ( Dienamics die)  are liquid pearls, half a paper doily and some flowers from my stash. What do you think? I am pleased with the result and will be making some more like it.
Blessings Hilde
