Christening Card

My sister's two little grandsons are being Christened this weekend. She has been staying with me for a few days. 'Have you got a Christening card' she mused as she was browsing through my cards. Yes, I had one, so we needed another for the other child. My new Child's Year cartridge had just arrived, so I cut this sweet image of a little boy kneeling (at 4"), and put a cuttlebug embossed border down the side. The child image was holding a book, but I wanted a bigger book so I cut one of the scalloped card shapes out at 2" to make a tiny book. The 1 1/2" cross was cut from the wedding cartridge, yes, it chewed up the very top of the cross, but by this time it was about 1am and I figured it looked okay

Some of the images on this cartridge are really sweet ........expect to see a lot more on here

I love the background and the image, but I would have chosen a different colour, maybe a nice royl blue.
