Keepsake Christening Card

I had a commission for two boxed keepsake christening cards -both for the same little baby girl. This is the first one - I've used my fave teddy - I'm sure you are all fed up looking at him - but I adore the image. I choose a pale pink, lemon and cream colour scheme. I stamped in brown ink and embossed the teddy onto some pale lemon gingham paper. I added a gorgeous ribbon bow and some sparkly eyes. The papers are from my downloads collection - I don't know where I got them from. The image was layered on to a square nestie shape, the border is one of my new Martha Stewart border punches. I added some pale pink pearls to the borders. a few punched out flowers and leaves finish it off. All sentiments and verses were made on the computer. The box has an image of the teddy stamped on it and another of my new buys the Spellbinders shaped banner.


I am entering this into the following challenges
