Today my newest grandson Parker was baptized!! It was so cute because during the ceremony when our priest was saying a prayer while anointing or blessing him, Parker looked right at him & listened to every word! Anyway....this is the card I made for him. I wanted it to be elegant looking to mark such a special occasion in his life! Of course he doesn't have a clue what it means now, but I thought my daughter, his mother, would appreciate it!! Of course I almost never get a good clean picture with the correct lighting...the card stock is actually a bright white! The verse I embossed in gold is from the Baptism & Confirmation Verses set by Our Daily Bread Designs. The oval & gold paper behind it was cut using Spellbinder's A2 Filigree Delight. The white paper behind it is embossed with a Cuttlebug folder called Decorative Tile. I then added that whole piece to my white card base with dimensional foam strips. My daughter liked the verse being embossed in gold! Well..till next time...thanks for stopping by!

This is a card I made for my niece Megan's baby shower. She is expecting her first child on Christmas Day of all days!! Her & her husband know that they will be having a baby girl & have already picked Camilla Sue as her name. I thought this baby in the bassinet image was so sweet...but here comes the bad part...I forgot where I purchased it!!! I have got to start writing down the image name and origin as soon as I start the card!!! Anyway...the only coloring I did was on the bassinet cover & drapery with a pink Promarker. I couldn't deal with just leaving the rest of it plain white so I just "colored" it by brushing the Clear Wink of Stella brush over it to give it a little shimmer. It looks "goldish" in the picture in some places, but I assure you it was just a whitish shimmer. I used the Spellbinder's Legacy Die to frame it in white & placed a pink paper behind it that matched my Promarker & to bring out some of the detail on this beautiful die. I then placed it on my card top which I had embossed with a dotted Darice folder and added some pink pearls! Thanks for stopping by to take a peek!!
