Finally - Lachy's Christening Card

It has taken me FOREVER, but I have finally made a card for our godson's christening that I am happy with. And once again one of Makeesha's challenges helped me out of the slump!

I took a little bit of liberty with the sketch, changing some of the dimensions. I used the Classic Stars Jumbo Wheel as my starting point and the rest evolved from there. The only part that may not be self explanatory is that I swiped the large Whisper White panel with the Baja Breeze ink pad so it wasn't quite so stark.

This is such a lovely sketch that I may have another play before the end of the week - Paul is currently out at the cricket with Luana, so it's lovely to have a little bit of me time!!

Oh!! I have some wonderfully exciting news too. My little nephew arrived safely last week, so we are just over the moon!! I will post some creations made for him soon.

Have a great week!

Stamp: Classic Stars Jumbo Wheel
Card: Baja Breeze, Whisper White, Brushed Silver
Ink: Baja Breeze
Punches: Large Star, Small Star
Other: Paper piercer

I think this card is amazing, your colours are soft and delicate, and the stars work a real treat. It's a beautiful card for Lachy's christening card.

Great idea to use stars in this sketch. Love the swiping of the ink pad on the white!
