   I have made this card for my youngest grandson's christening which is next Sunday.
   I embossed grey whitewash core'dinations cardstock using the Darice folder 'corner scroll' from Crafter's Companion. Having sanded it I matted and layered it onto grey blue centura pearl and white card.
   The image is 'baby christening' from Lili of the Valley and I have coloured it using Promarkers. I then cut it out with a Spellbinders lacy oval die and wove blue ribbon round the edge tying the ends into a bow. It was fixed to the card with double sided tape.
   I made three roses and, adding a bow and punched leaves, formed a posy in the bottom left hand corner of the card.

   I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
   Crafter's Companion - baby
   Lili of the Valley - anything goes
   ABC - X is for extra special
   Paper Pretties - permission to embellish everything
   Allsorts -ribbon and bows
