Penny Black Saturday #170!

Hello! Sorry this is later than planned but I've had a manic week and only got time to sit down and make a card today! But it's a card for this weeks Penny Black Saturday challenge, this weeks theme is to use a Monochromatic colour scheme, and I think pretty much all of the DT have used different colours!
This weeks prize is from the lovely people at Fantastic Ribbons!
Here's my card, it's a pretty simple one because I'm making some samples for some baby announcement/thank you cards (hi Susannah if you're reading!!) I thought the sentiment could be changed and a photo in place of the stamp but wanted to keep it simple if I'm going to be making quite a few. Anyway, thanks for looking! Here's the challenges I'd like to enter this for:
Sweet Stop Sketch - This sketch
Sweet Stamping Challenge - Anything Goes
My Mums Craft shop - Boys or Girls card
Simon Says Stamp - Die cuts or punches
Papertake - Creature Comforts
Oldie but a Goodie - One for the Boys
Top Tip Tuesday - Card for a child
Image - Penny Black 'Baby Hammock'
Colouring - Copics
Papers - Pink Petticoat
Gems & ribbon - stash
Stars - Dovecraft & Woodware punches
Sentiment - Elzybells & Stampin' Up oval punch
