Layers and more layers!!!!

Hi! I hope you are having a great weekend and a great Valentine's day!!!

I've got a new card for you today. It's a new baby card for a friend of mine who is due any time now! Actually, the baby should have been here exactly one week ago!

I decided to make the card in my "messy" style... lots of layers, distressing, heat embossing and lots of embellishments! I really had a lot of fun making it.

For this card I used a LOTV stamp, which I bought a few years ago, right before my long crafting break and I never had the chance to use. 
I decided to use Kraft and pink on my card, which together with blue and pink is one of my favourite colour combinations.
