Christening Card

Here's a card I was asked to make for a friend to give a family who are having their wee boy Christened at the weekend.  She wanted something a bit different to a usual, folded card, so I made a criss-cross card with a slider element.
The lovely Lili of the Valley stamp was lent to me by my friend, Alison, and was coloured with a mixture of Promarkers and Flexmarkers, highlighted with some Frosted Lace Stickles.
The papers are Eline's Nursery by Marianne and have been embellished with Diamond stickles, blue glitter and Anita's 3D Gloss.  The letters for the name were from printed sheets in the paper pack and were simply cut out.
The lace punch is Martha Stewart.
I've finished my card with a bow, teddy charm and some glass nuggets.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Creative Belli - #143 - babies
Divas By Design - # 34 - for the boys
I Love Promarkers # 116 - hatpins or charms
The Paper Shelter - #63 - anything goes
