Christening Day

Today's card is for a little girl who is being Christened today:

I found this gorgeous digi by googling 'Regency dresses colouring pages' as I wanted a Jane Austen style dress to use as a Christening gown. I changed the colour of the digi to silvery grey, printed it onto card then fussy cut the image. I've added some white glitter which is difficult to see in the photo and some pale pink ribbon and flat-backed pearls. The image is mounted onto the card with foam pads to make it stand out. The greeting is done in Candy Round font on the computer and matted onto pastel pink and silver mirri paper.

The whole thing looked a bit too CAS if you know what I mean, so I added some Rennie Mackintosh style peel-offs in the top corners.

I've entered this card into the challenges at:

2 Sisters Challenge - Baby
Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge - Pastel colours
Craft for the Craic - something for baby

Thanks for visiting
