Archie's Christening Card

Our wee great-nephew, Archie, gets christened on Sunday and here's the card I made for the event.  It's not my usual sort of card but I enjoyed making it, even although there's no stamping on it at all!  I borrowed Mum's Spellbinders crosses and got busy with the embossing folders to give this simple card a bit of interest.  The bear was created with an ancient Xcut die which hasn't seen the light of day for aaagggeeesssss.  I should get it out more often as he's just so cute!  The name was done with Papermania stickers and I finished off with some knotted ribbon, dew drops and three heart gems.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
That Craft Place - make your own background, I used embossing folders
Crafts and Me - #105 - anything goes
Divas by Design - #56 - anything goes
Shopping Our Stash - #72 - tic tac toe - sparkle (gems and dew drops), ribbon, embossing
Incy Wincy Designs - anything goes
