Christening card

I was commissioned to make a Christening card with the request that it have lots of pink, the child's name and a Bible verse.

I've used double sided Fancy Pants 'heavenly' paper from their Key Lime Pie range.

The Bible book shapes were cut with a nestie die. I used a little strip of white teddies (had these for years) as the stopper and the Forever Friends bear and other elements.

Inside I stuck a couple of glittered hearts with gems and the 'on your special day' sentiment.

The scripture verse:

This is for:

Forever friends 59: die cuts/punches (used FF products)
Card mania 18: punches and/or die cuts
Twist of faith 32: getting in shape
Word art Wednesday 75: anything goes
Tuesday throwdown 142: fancy folds
Little Claire 31: cards with folds
A and T 22: hearts
Creative inspirations 209: anything goes + option: hearts
Ready teddy go 21: anything goes (featuring a bear)
Kaboodle 166: use any shade of pink
