Sketch Saturday 114 and Totally Gorjuss 41

I made this card last night and I am quite pleased with it.  I have never made a baby card before and didn't think I had any images that would suit, so wasn't going to enter the challenge at Totally Gorjuss, which was a baby theme.  However, on checking my stamps I came across Arthur.  I had got this stamp in the goody bag from Funky Kits, some time ago and at that time, didn't think it was an image I would use.  So if I hadn't being doing this challenge, I probably still  wouldn't have used it.  Glad I did.  When I first purchased this goody bag, I wasn't sure about the stamps that I got, but have since used two,  they might not have been my choice of purchase, but they have certainly been very useful, so maybe I need to think a bit more about stamps that I purchase in future.
The card is being entered in Saturday Sketch 114, although I have rotated the sketch and Totally Gorjuss - birth, christening or first birthday.
I was going to use the card for a first birthday, until I found this sticker for new arrival, which matched the papers I was using.  I have had these papers for at least two years and never used them.
