Oh Boy a New Baby

Hello all, hope you are all well and having  a lovely week.
It's been absolutely freezing here in Kent but I must admit I do quite like the cold and it's nice to finally feel that we are in winter-I much prefer this to the horrible rain.
I've been slowly getting back into my crafting the last couple of weeks but am still struggling slightly with my mojo and things don't seem to be quite clicking at the minute. I'm trying not to worry about it and am just plodding along as and when I feel like spending time in my room.
I did make this last weekend as we thought our niece was going into hospital on Monday to be induced but have since found out it's next week!-still, at least it's done and ready to go now. I just hope her scan's right and it is a little boy!!
I used a gorgeous image I've had for a while from Pink Gem. The fab spotty blue paper is from a set called Micro dots by Lozzy at A Bit More Time to Craft and the stripey one was in my stash.
I die cut the image with a Nellie Snellen circle die and backed it with an X cut scalloped circle.
I die cut some cute little buttons with a die I bought at Hobbycraft and added a couple of die cut balloons. The white strip was punched with my new Xcut border punch and the sentiment is from a Daisy and Dandelion clear stamp set:

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:
