I just happened to stumble across Charisma Cardz Challenge Blog for the first time and thought I would try out their lovely sketch challenge this week. You know I'm addicted to challenges and especially sketches.
I needed a Baptism card for my grandson fro tomorrow and this sketch is perfect.
I used a beautiful stamp set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps called "Elegant Blessings".
The construction of this card didn't turn out exactly like I planned, but I really like the outcome. I was planning on an All White Card, but I kept adding just a little blue here and there and so much for the All White! However, this card was very difficult to photograph. The colors just look a little washed out. But, maybe it's jus my monitor.
I used two different cuttlebug embossing folders for the backgrounds
I wasn't certain if I wanted to go with the baby blue or white for the hand stitching around the card. But I think the blue was the right choice.
This card took me forever to make. But, when it's for a family member who will have it in his scrapbook for the rest of his life, you strive for perfection!
