Baby Girl Christening Card


Just a quickie post from me tonight ... we're watching The Fall on telly - a murder story based in Belfast, and for a change not based on 'The Troubles', so no oul politics!  So far it's quite good, and it's fun trying to spot all the places we know.
This is another wee Christening card ... I haven't made a Christening card for years and now 2 in less than a month!  I've used this cute ellie from Wild Rose Studio - coloured with pencils and balloons popped up with dimensionals.  Gold peel off sentiment - I would have preferred a silver one, but this was the only one in my stash and beggars can't be choosers!!  Pink stickles added to the ellie's toes and to the flower centres.

Sketch from Annabelle Stamps #163
Cutie Pie #44 - photo inspiration - I used the balloon theme from the image
Tammy's Scrappin Corner #63 - pink and girly with sparkle
Dream Valley Challenge #57 - animals
Simon Says ... flower power
Alota Rubber Stamps #107 - childhood

Hi, Lynne! Such a cute card :-) Thanks for joining us at Dream Valley! The allotment has moved into our back garden where I can keep a better eye on it so it's not doing too badly at the moment. How are your green fingers? Love 'n' hugs, Mel xx
