A christening card.

Good evening blogger friends.

I hope you are all well and having a lovely weekend. I feel very tired today after a busy week at work so not much going on in the Gurnhill house today. After I have written this blog I will be doing some catching up with my blogging buddies then it will be a couple of glasses of wine, a Chinese and we may well watch We're the Millers. Such a good film.
I have a christening card to share with you today. I have used a Dutch Doobadoo stencil for the shape of the card. I may well buy some more of these as they are a far cheaper way of creating a shaped card.

The image has been coloured with Distress Markers and the papers are Pion Design. I have cut the banner die out twice as the die has only 4 pennants and cut the second in half. The letters are from Urban Stamps.

The flowers are from WOC. The stars are from a Martha Stewart mould as are the small butterflies.
The stamp at the side of the image is from LOTV.

The ribbon and the charm are from The Ribbon Girls and the heart if from LLC.

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

Simply Create Too - For a child
Alphabet Challenge - L for Lace
Creative Corner - Love of Ribbon
