Baptism Day

I thought I'd share the card and shadow box I finished late last night for my niece Natalie's Baptism today.  Her room is purple and sage, so that's why I picked the colors I did for the shadow box.
I love how everything turned out and am so pleased with the final product.  I put it in a white wooden shadow box, but when I took a photo of it in the box of course, there was way too much light on the glass. 
It looks gorgeous in real life.
Paper - All Bazzill Cardstock
Tools - Cricut - scalloped purple frame around photo mat & Heaven Sent (Lyrical Letters)
Miscellaneous - Flat Backed Pearls, Prima White Flowers, Prima white pearl swirl, Purple Flowers - Michaels floral section, Fiskars & EK Success Punches
For the Card, I used many of the same materials - the additions were:
Stamp - Stampendous Floral Cross
Embossing - Versa Mark Ink & Zing Lavender Embossing powder
Sentiment - Created in MS Publisher with Word Art
And I can't post Baptism gift & card photos without a little photo of the sweet baby girl now can I?  Isn't she precious?
Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you're having a great weekend.
Off to watch a little NCAA March Madness....well, I'll listen and color some new Easter images and hubby will watch. We've already thrown away our brackets as Kansas lost last night and that's who we had winning.  I imagine there are a lot of basketball fans that did the same thing we did.
Go Green - Go White!
Happy Craftin'!
