Inkspirations Sketch Challenge # 6

Its time to have another go at Keesh's Challenges! Here is her sketch challenge:
I needed to make a pink baby card so I thought I would use this layout, did three at one go:

It's the first time I am using pinks with grays rather than my favourite pinks and browns. I was quite happy with how it turned out :) Thanks to my lovely friend Jayne B., I learnt how to use my almost forgotten Fiskars circle cutters! Thanks Jayne!! Unfortunately Fiskars does not have circle shapes in increments of 1/4 " so my layered circles are abit big, but that will have to do for now.
I used the new In Color paper (the polka dot background one) - Pink Pirouette and it is absolutely gorgeous! I thought I would not buy the matching ink pad but having used it now I am so buying it.
I stamped the cute pram twice and cut it out in the Pink Pirouette paper and stuck it down with dimensionals. I didn't have any matching patterned paper so I used a Pretty in Pink piece of scrap paper and stamped hearts over it.
A rather simple card but I love it! Thanks for a lovely sketch, Keesh!
