Not a Tilda !!!

This card was made for a young man's Christening Day a little while ago . . . and I didn't use a Tilda stamp, shock, horror!!!  I haven't made anything other than a Tilda card since May 2010, I think I need to lie down again!!!





The image is actually from Mo's Digital Pencil and when I first saw him on her site, I just had to buy him. 

The colouring was done with Copic markers:

Skin: E000; E00; E02 and R20

Hair: E11; E21; E37 and YR00

Clothing: Y00; B00 and B02

The designer paper is from DCWV Nana's Nursery "Baby Boy".  I just love the glitter on this paper.



I've matted this onto baby blue card from The Papermill (£4 per box, absolute bargain)




I've used 40mm baby blue organza ribbon across the centre of the card and blue adhesive stones to accent the ribbon and the baby's clothing.







The lower half of the easel card is decorated with blue polka dot buttons through which I have threaded 3mm satin blue ribbon.
 
The sentiment was found on the Internet.
 
I'm hoping to find some challenges to enter with this one so I'll be back later to update this.

PS. Ok so I found these challenges:
