C is for Christening

I spent hours yesterday in think mode followed by trial mode and then, unfortunately, in error mode.  I was trying to work out a design for some bulk Christmas cards and I failed to come up with anything and wasted most of the day and some pretty stash too.
All is not lost, however, challenge #160 at Mo's Digital this week is "C is for..." so here is a Christening card I made for my new Great Niece.
I used the little girl version of baby falling which you can find here.  She is listed as "Babygirl S".  There are three others in the set suitable for all sorts of babies.  Unfortunately, I can't work out where my pink paper was from. The lilac is Wild Rose Studio.  I added a Marianne corner die and "blessed" is a PTI sentiment die.  The flowers are a mixture of Recollections and ones my Mum crocheted for me.
I am additionally entering my card into Sweet Stamping,
Papertake Weekly  and One Stop who all have "Anything Goes" challenges this week and Totally PaperCrafts #142 "Cute and Girly"

So pretty. I adore the image and those little flowers are perfect. I hate crafting days like the one you had. I am not a visual person. I have to see the actual thing and I waste so much time and "treasured stash" that way. Good luck on coming up with your final design. Hugs
