vintage christening card

Today is moving along with the times day for a new challenge, this week the theme is vintage  pastels, also followed a sketch the main image is from one of Joanna sheens cds the papers are all off cuts, and the laces are all left overs from doll making years, the only thing I remember is the gem stone swirl I got from the nec last christmas, that up to now havent used because I have been waiting for the right card to put it on, anyway I hope you like it


  1. Oh My goodness Dorothy its perfect, truly it is.
    I so love that lacy border and the lace,the gem swirl is perfect too, Hey guess what I love it.
