Baby shower card for a friend

Hello lovely bloggers,

Hope you had a good weekend... A very warm welcome to my new follower and a big thank you. 

I have been invited to a baby shower this week so here is a quick card I put together in like 8 minutes - with a printed ribbon,  dry embossing, teeny weeny bit of stamping (Hampton Art stamp) and a ready made bow. 
Since the baby's gender is not known I left it at silver and white. And be prepared for a lot of silver and white Christmas cards that I am making. 

I seem to be loving silver and white these days... wonder why??? And I am kind of making flatter cards  as a friend of mine has asked for them. She wants to post them overseas so doesn't want 3D stuff on them. At first I felt a bit restricted, but now am enjoying the idea of creating such cards. 

I am going to enter this card for the following challenges: - anything goes - always anything goes - glitter and bling - monochromes - use a ribbon

Wish you a pleasant week ahead.
