Christening card...

Good morning, dear Blogger buddies, on another beautifully sunny day here in North Wales! I absolutely LOVE the sunshine - I'm not bothered about heat, 20 degrees is just fine for me, but the brighter days give me so much more energy and motivation!  Only problem is, I don't want to be inside!  The washing machine doesn't know what's hit it and I've been doing some weeding in the garden.
I have had a couple of card orders to fulfill, so I have been crafting inbetween times - this is one of 3 christening cards that I was asked to make, all for the same person!  I find this so hard as you have to come up with 3 completely different ideas!  Anyway, this is number one...
...I decided to make the sentiment the focal point as I didn't really have an appropriate image, so it had to be my Marianne doily dies!...
Card Recipe -
Papers - First Edition Love Letters
Marianne doily die sets LR0141 & LR0180
Spellbinders Circle Dies 
Sue Wilson Pierced Flag Die
Cheery Lynn Leaf Strip Border and Exotic Butterflies #2
Dusky Rose Grosgrain Ribbon
WOC carnation, sweetheart blossoms, mini roses and rosebuds
Small cross charm
 The card had to be placed in a box and I finished the inside with a printed insert and verse.
That's it from me today, I'm off to have a hop around, then it's bathroom cleaning and maybe a bit of design work later....Have a totally terrific Thursday!
Crafty hugs,
I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges :

Anything Goes closes in 2 hours!!
April Challenge - Flights of Fancy
They who have Wings until 13th

This is a superb Christening card Lisa, very pretty and I love the doily die cuts and arranged flowers. It is difficult to make a number of cards for the same person/occasion, I get orders like that quite a lot from my relatives and then they ask again the next year too so I have to remember not to duplicate from year to year as well :/ - still it's great that they want me to do them. Look forward to seeing your other Christening cards too, I'm in the middle of a Christening Album for the end of this month so will be able to share then. Take care and don't do too much housework :)
