New year, new beginnings

Wow, it's 2014!  Happy new years to all.
"New Beginnings" is the theme at this time of year, and that was the perfect reason for me to make a new baby card for my niece, who is due in a few weeks.  I wouldn't consider her old fashioned in any way, but she doesn't know the sex of the baby, and doesn't want to, so I made a card that was neither pink nor blue. I went with pastel green and a very pale yellow.
The sketch is Feeling Sketchy #77.
The image (from Autumn Leaves) is black embossed and paper pieced. The panel is pierced around the edges, wrapped in light green bakers twine and popped up on pop-dots.  There's a little rocking horse charm hanging off of the twine.

I'm entering the card in the following challenges:
