Baby card

For this card I used the sketch from Sketch and Stash and the challenge from Papertake Weekly which is to use pastel colours.

I love pastels and they lend themselves beautifully to baby and wedding cards, both my favourite card making categories!
I'm doing really well with favourites for this of my favourite images and some of my favourite papers too:) The image is called Embrace and is (obviously-her stamps stand out a mile) by Penny Black, coloured with Promarkers and Prismas, and the papers are Bella from the MM Kids Collection. The new thing I used this week was the lace across the middle of the card.

I wonder if any of you know where I can get this stamp please? I received this image amongst a load stamped for me last year by my blogging buddy Jo and this is my last one :( At 1.30 this morning I was trawling the internet looking for it but everywhere I found it was out of stock. Has it been discontinued? I am prepared to buy it from the US as long as the shipping costs aren't a rip off! Thanks in advance for your help.

Back to the wedding order now. I'm on the downward run on this one so it should all be finished and collected by Tuesday. There is something about this wedding that I have never come across before and that is both the bride's dad and the groom's dad have the same Christian name (spelt the same) and both the bride's mum and the groom's mum share the same Christian name too. The b2b was also saying yesterday that hers and the g2b's birthdays are one day apart too. If that's not fate then I don't know what is :)
