Another Christening Card

Good morning. 
Happy Valentine's Day to all - hope you all have a wonderful day.

I would like to share another card I have made for my Grand-daughter's Christening next month - this is for my MiL 'Great Grandma Norma' to send - so I hope she likes it :o)
 I have used a LOTV die-cut image this time and teamed it with some Craftwork Cards pearlised papers - unfortunately the sheen from the papers  make it difficult to photograph and you can't see the foiled flowers on the top left square - but they are there IRL - honest :o)

I added some scrummy cream lace over some gold flecked sheer ribbon and a few adhesive pearls to opposite corners - I like how this turned out :o)
A few simple flowers and foliage to balance the LOTV circular sentiment - date of Christening to be added - and that's it done :o)

Challenges I would like to enter:
Bunny Zoe's Crafts - Celebrations
Crafty Cardmakers - Monochrome (2nd Entry)
Incy Wincy Designs - Recipe - 3 Embellishments, 2 DP's and 1 Image
Karens Doodles - Celebrate
Crafty Emma - Lots of Layers

We had a successful trip to Ikea yesterday - Jack's room is all planned out - today we are going to choose the paint and tomorrow we get started :o)
I think it's best if I keep out of the way - so what better place to be than in my little crafty haven - result :o)

Thanks for popping in today.
