New baby card 'Twins'

Good Afternoon blog land,
Well as promised earlier I am back to share with you a card I have just made for a friend who had twins on Friday. She had a girl and a boy so I decided to make a double gate fold card so I caould do it 1/2 blue and 1/2 pink.
I used papers from the Forever Friends 'New Beginning' range. I also used the spots and dots embossing folder then just lightly rubbed some ink over the top, I used Centura pearel card for this.
The tags I printed off from the Boofle cd rom using my Docrafts digital designer so that I could add in the baby's details.

I have used both Pink Gem baby papers and digi images for the inside of my card as I wanted to make the prams 'pop out' when you opened the card.

I wanted this to be more than just another New Baby card I wanted it to be more of a keepsake. I hope I have achieved this.

I am entering this into the following challenges:
