Free and Easy Pt2 At Allsorts

 Good morning. Wowzers did we have a fabulous amount of stunning entries to our Free and Easy Pt1 challenge at ALLSORTS last week - it certainly wasn't easy to pick my Top5 so I had some help from my wonderful DT buddies - please pop over to the main challenge blog to see if you were one of the lucky ones.
So we are continuing on with our 


theme and this week I took the opportunity to make a Christening card for my 
scrummilicious Grand-Daughter Lola Arizona's upcoming Christening next month.

I used an 8"x8" scalloped edged card (from Craftwork Cards) as the base card and the gorgeous image is from Mo Manning - isn't it adorable :o)
I coloured her with PM's and Flexmarkers and I have to say I'm quite pleased with how it turned out this time :o)
Checked DP - Craftwork Cards and the very pretty pearlised floral and flutterby DP is Kanban 

I used a Spellinders label to die-cut the PC generated sentiment and inked it with Spun Sugar Distress Ink whilst still in the die - I love how this gives it a crisp white border :o)
I also delicately inked the punched embossed border with Spun Sugar Distress Ink .
The scrummy heart ribbon is from my stash and so is the teeny angel charm ,just peeking below the bow.

This also used:
Spellbinders Labels 1 and the new Labels 1 small - I'm so glad they made this new size as I always felt the border was always to big before and now it's just perfect :o)
And to finish a couple of wooden flower embellies with some adhesive pearls for the centres

Sketch and Stash - Free choice sketch - I picked #5 and my new stash is the scrummy image and DP's
