Christening Card


So yesterday my little Great Nephew was christened and we had a lovely afternoon tea afterwards. Of course I had to make a special card for the occasion.
The actual picture is in fact Mason's hand but I'm not sure which parent is holding him, the pic is one of several my niece sent me but I changed the colour to sepia.
I then used the last blue papers from Echo Park Devoted pack along with some Crumb Cake from Stamping Up. I used a Martha Stewart PATP for the outside mat but I had to cut it down to fit the card but the ribbon manages to hide some of the join.
Memory Box hearts they are so handy and the buttons are MFT dies and I have this thing that you can't stick buttons on unless they are threaded.
The sentiment is from LOTV, hope my niece and her hubby like it.
