Sketched Baptism

Hello everyone,

Today's card was commissioned by a colleague. She asked for a boy's baptism card. I used yesterday's Sweet Sketch Wednesday as a jumping-off point and am really glad I did because the card turned out wonderfully and my colleague was really pleased.

The card base is from Recollections. The remaining paper is Martha Stewart Playful Blue and Stampin' Up Whisper White. The background layer was textured with Sizzix Circle Circus. The sentiment is Gina K Lovely Labels. The embellishments are Peggy's Pretties.

I don't have any religious-inspired images but I felt that this sentiment, highlighted in the ovals, would work just fine. I'm actually really happy with the results. The layers, combined with the simplicity of the sketch, come together beautifully.

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.
