Christening Card for Clara


Good morning everyone...I hope you are having a good week so far...it has felt quite autumnal here the last couple of days...if it persists I might have to put my flippy flops away and get my boots out...I was so cold yesterday and spent most of the day wearing a cardigan...nice to know that the British weather can still keep us on our toes during the holiday season!

I wanted to share with you the card I made for Clara...the gorgeous little girl whose Christening we attended in Scotland...the design papers on this card were a freebie with a craft magazine and I love the patchwork effect and fab combination of colours...the card is all glittery and sparkly in real life as I added stickles to the flowers and around the border of the image and sentiment...I really need to improve my camera skills to pick up on the sparkle...I haven't quite managed to master it yet!

I am entering my card into the following challenges...
