"Welcome Baby" card with Susie Bentz

Hello and welcome!
Susie here today with a card featuring one of our all new baby themed dies, Sweet Pea:

I created this using the Die-Namites Dies October Sketch Challenge and Dare.
Here is the sketch:

And here are the dies I used for my project:

You can see below that I used all of the layers from the sketch.  
I changed them up a bit, putting the lace and ribbon on top of the layer holding my sentiment:

Here is a close up of the Sweet Pea die cut,
which I cut in (2) different shades of green so I could mix and match the colors:
I also die cut the sweet little face out of white cardstock,
coloring with ink to a peachy flesh tone before I trimmed it with scissors and adhered it on top.

The "dare" portion of the challenge was to use burlap on the project, 
which I accomplished with this 5/8" strip of burlap ribbon:

Here's another look at the finished card:
