A Christening Card or Baby Girl

Hello everyone how are you all? Sorry I've not been about I've not been well at all & not bothered with crafting or the laptop tbh. Although when I went on yesterday I noticed the new Magnolia's so had to pre-order them lol. Anyway they finally think they have found the cause to me being ill & in lots of pain so I have to go next week for a preocedure to get it confirmed but up to now its looking like I may have Chrohn's Disease........but we wont know for certain til next week.

Anyhooo's enough of my moaning, sorry my lovelies. Ok I was asked a while ago to make a christening card & well although I said yes, after I was nervous as I had never made one before........EVER!!
Also my confidence on card making is taking a slum at the mo, I dont know why, so I made a few incase some of them were rubbish lol.
This I've not put a sentiment on as it could do for a new Baby Girl as well as christening.....
I've used my favourite baby girl image from Mo Manning & went with lots of foofiness on this one ;0)

The fabric flower flower is from my stash & the white rolled one is a MB die. The remaining flowers are from WOC.

I've made a double bow with seam binding & attached a silver dummy which I attached to some chain, then added a bit of extra bling with the button.

The image is called 'Baby Girl' & she is coloured with copics. I think the colours used are.....
E21, E00, E000, R20
E35, E33, E31, E30
R83, R81, RV10
C3, C1, COO
I also added shabby pink fran-tage around the edges.

I used an MS punch around the edge & the papers are MME 'Lost & Found - Madison Avenue' & I've inked the edges & machine stitched them.

Well thats it from me I have my gorgeous grandchildren today as its Megan's 21st birthday so Ben has booked a day off work & has took her out for the day shopping for new clothes & a bite to eat. So I'm gonna enjoy my day babysitting............ me loves my nanna time ;0)

Thank you for stopping by it means a lot
Squishy hugs to all mmwah

Stunning card Vicky. I love the cute image, beautiful colouring and your detailing is totally gorgeous.
So sorry to hear about your health problems. I hope you get on okay next week. I was diagnosed with Chrohn's Disease 16 years ago after suffering for many years It was good to be able to finally get some treatment for it even if it's not a very nice thing to live will. I hope they will be able to help you.
Thinking of you and sending you big hugs
