Celebrate A Christening

Soooooo, tonight I would like to share with you a card I made a while ago, but just hadn't blogged about.

This was an order from the step-mother (non-wicked) for a Christening she was attending.

I made this card using an LOTV stamp, which I coloured using promarkers.  I then cut the image out to a rectangle, layered it onto some gauze, which I think gives it a lovely shabby chic edge, and then layered that onto some DP from the LOTV bear necessities paper pad.

I added a little white bow and two tags, stamped in silver using the LOTV every day sentiment tag stamps.  I also used a blank tag from the Christmas sentiment stamp tag and wrote 'Oliver' in silver gel pen.  I then added little blue gems to the remaining three corners of the image panel.

I attached this panel to the right hand side of the card.

I then pleated some ivory ribbon along the left-hand edge and add a little bow at the bottom made from two shades of blue ribbon.

To finish the card, I added blue gems in each corner.

I would like to add this card to the following challenges:

Happy Crafting!
