First Holy Communion Celebrations...

Today's card is one I have been asked to make to celebrate a very special occasion - my friend's son's First Holy Communion...


I struggled at first to find any suitable images that weren't either too old fashioned or too cutesy - most of the stuff available is of very prissy looking angelic boys, and Andrew is anything but! I found this lovely die-cut decoupage in my local craft store - it only took a couple of minutes to put together! I didn't want any fussiness on the card as it's for a boy so I kept it plain and simple and just used the image and some die-cut letters.

I've entered this card into the following challenges...
