Happy May!!

Wow, the1st of May already, how quickly time flies.  I've noticed that I haven't posted since the 9th of April, I had no idea that it had been that long, lol.

Apologies for the standard of the photography, I've not mastered my camera yet.

This is the box for a christening card I was commissioned to make for a little boy being christened today actually (Many congratulations to his very proud parents!).

The image has been mounted on a 'shaper' from the Clipart Fairy.

The digi images of a bear in a basket and an elephant are from Elline Pellinkhof and I've decoupaged and glittered them up.

The image is repeated on the main card but is more deeply decoupaged and glittered.

The "Best Day Ever" sentiment seal is from Cat's Life Press.

A second 'shaper' has been used in a different orientation to place the greeting text on.

Just a closer look of the front of the easel card.

The paper is from the Clipart Fairy and I've used some silver peel off corners,borders and text.

A length of blue satin polka dot ribbon has been used behind the 'shaper' and tied into a bow.

The bottom edge has been embellished with Card Candy which I think are pretty amazing and are so versatile.  I'm busy collecting all the colours, lol.

If you're interested take a look at their blog, here, it's very inspiring.  I love it!

Just one more photo to show the depth of the decoupage!

I'm going to spend some time now looking around for any challenges this card might meet . . . I'll be back, ha, ha.
