A Baptism for Twins

I hope everyone had a great weekend! I had a relaxing one, but didn't get much done! I guess you need to have one of those every now and then to just unwind and relax! I had to go to a baptism party today. Our friends' daughter had twins recently (a boy and a girl...Gabriel and Gwendolyn), so I had to make a card. There aren't many stamps and such for this type of occasion, but I think I made one work. Here's my card.I just love this PMS digi image called A Fairy for Kaleigh. I told Katie Cotton (owner of PMS) that I don't think I'll ever tire of this image! I started by choosing my dp. Sorry, I didn't write down the name of this one. I got it at my LSS a while ago. I colored the fairy images in pink and blue copic markers to represent the girl and boy. I used my blossom nesties to cut and emboss the image and then to sponge in some background color with Pink Pirouette and Soft Sky ink. I of course added Star Dust Stickles to the images. The sentiment (inside and out, as well as the cross on the inside) are from PTI's Everyday Blessings. The sentiment on the front was sponged with the pink and blue ink. Finally, I layered two sheer is pink with with white polka dots and the other a wider blue ribbon. The card was a big hit at the party. Everyone loved the image! It's such a sweet one!

Just a reminder...starting Wednesday, the PMS design team will be doing peeks of the June release! Lots of stamps in this release! I'll be posting peeks on Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday (and possibly Thursday, as well). On Sunday, there will be a blog hop and release party later in the day. I hope you can join in all the fun! Well, that's it for today. I hope you have a great week and thanks for stopping in!
