Tennis Baby

Hi everyone, hope you are all having a great weekend....
This card is made using an image from Diaper Crew at Mos Digital Pencil.
It was an order and I got a bit carried away with the cute baby thing until I suddenly realised that I had been asked to incorporate a tennis racket (see the revised card below lol....)
The swirl is Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish and the seam binding is from Wild Orchid Crafts.
I coloured the image with copics and stitched with my sewing machine (still getting to grips with it so ignore the slightly wonky stitching....






I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Mos Digital Pencil - Anything with a Mo Image
Crafty Anns Challenge - Stitching
Poodles Parlour - Anything Goes
Willow Sketchie Challenge - Die cuts/Punches (I have die cuts on my card)
