Baby Christening

I don't think I ever posted this card I made for a baptism last year. I remember I had a lot of fun making it. The LO was from a similar card I saw somewhere online, and I thought that the dress stamp was perfect to use for a baby girl christening.

I was proud of myself for using up some things I had been hoarding! The tiny copper ribbon letters that spell out the baby's name had been hidden away in hopes of just such an occasion! I wanted the brads to match the Aqua Mist CS so I used white brads and dabbed on matching ink. I was happy when they dried to just the right color! The Basic Grey PP was sewed onto the CS and the main image was aged with distress ink. I added the sentiment with PTI stamps. SUPPLIES
