A Christening card for Friday Sketchers

I hope you've all had a wonderful Easter, I've had a nice quiet weekend - lots of playing in my craft room, sheer bliss and also a visit from the grandchildren. I snapped this pic of our Amy in the garden, she's walking now and to think 10 months ago we nearly lost her. She’s a really mammy’s little girl – always dressed in frilly pink (her mammy changes her outfit 10 times a day, poor bairn)

I needed to make a Christening card for an order (don't like to take orders, way too much pressure I think - I much prefer my daughter to take them off my hands, she sells them to raise funds for charity). Anyhoo, back to the card - it had to be pink, it had to have an angel on and it had to be pretty-pretty. I hope they're happy with this cos I ain't redoing it. I've used this weeks Friday Sketchers sketch, fab to work with and yes, the MSBP crept in again *rolls eyes*)

A bit more punching and a few more pearls and the card was done.

  22. The card you created is just perfect! I love all the soft colors and the layout is very sweet with the
    pearls and swirls. I like the choice of the soft pink gingham paper it gives it a little something unexpected, I think.
    Your Little Amy is the sweetest of all. it looks like you fashioned the card after her sweet Easter dress!

    Lovely!
