Mason's Christening

Thank you for all your thoughts yesterday. It was a very difficult day but a beautiful service.

Today I have a christening card for an order. I kept the colours very soft on this one. I decided not to go for an all blue or white card and the gorgeous Tim Holtz Vintage Shabby papers were perfect for the colour scheme I had in mind. I used the gorgeous LOTV image with the minimum of colour from Promarkers. I used an MS border punch, some scrim, ribbon, teddy bear charm, Hobby House pearls and made some bunting for the name.The chipboard letters were from an old Dovecraft set. I forgot I had these letters but they went perfectly.

I would also like to enter this into Lisa (Wishcraft's) waste not Wednesday for using the letters.

I made the top 3 at Pollycraft and top5 at Try it on Tuesday, thanks girls.

Don't forget to enter my candy (see post above).
