Isabella's Christening

Hello there, hope you've all had a good week.

Saturday will be my baby's 16th birthday.  I can't quite believe that 16 years have gone by so fast.  I couldn't be prouder of my daughter, she's grown into a bright, strong, confident and beautiful young woman.  My only birthday wish for her is that she lives life the fullest and pursues her dreams with an open heart.  Happy Birthday Baby.

Emma didn't want a full-on birthday party, so we've got all the family coming around for a bit of a get-together.  I may even get a few photos to post.

Anyhoo, onto my card today.  I was asked last week to make a Christening card for a friend's grandaughter.  Which means I got to use LOTV's Baby Christening image which I coloured with copics.  I've had this stamp for an absolute age, but never had the opportunity to use it.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid, the ribbon is from Jaycotts, the jewel in the middle of the largest flower is from Imagine DIY.  I made a small hatpin too.  The sentiment was printed on the computer and that's about it for this card.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
