Baby Blessing

Operation Write Home is having a scetch challenge this week, and since I needed to make a baby card I decided to use this as my jumping off point.  I reoriented my card to be vertical rather than horizontal and used cuttlebug embossing instead of a piece of paper in the background, but I'm very happy with how it turned out.

The center of the ribbon was actually yellow, so I just colored over it with a pen to get a little green tint to it.  And please be impressed with the was all hand done because I still haven't taken my sewing machine to be repaired.

I made this for a baby boy, but I'm not sure how many people have christening dresses for infant boys anymore, so I may have to save this for another day.

Until next time,


  1. VERY impressed with the hand stitching! This card is beautiful. Outstanding interpretation of the sketch!
