For Our Daughter

As promised I'm back with the card we'll be giving to our daughter to celebrate her baptism.  She is the pioneer, the first-born, the trail-blazer :) , and to see her walk out her faith and beliefs, to see her stretch and grow in her gifts and abilities, to see her heart for following God has been so beautiful to us.  Just the other day she saw God do something powerful (and quite unexpected) in restoring a broken friendship and healing some wounds and I could see how powerful that was in her walk with God.  I love these moments in raising her.  And it's been our privilege to be a part of beginning to watch her fly :)


I.love.this.card.  It's special to me, because it's for our girl.  I also spent a lot of time on the coloring, pulling in a lot of shading techniques and trying to give it as much realism as possible.  Plus I love that I tied in the roses theme to the papers (MME Blush) and beautiful rose ribbon too.  It's the very lovely Lenten Rose set from Flourishes. I've die cut it out with the new Classic Keyhole Tailor-Made die from Flourishes as well.  Boy I love this die!  And then added the sentiment on a Labels Eleven Die.  

Because I used an out of the box technique with the leaves, I added the rhinestones on the left side to balance out the card too.  


plus:  R89, YG17, YG61, G21, G0000, BV00, BV0000, BG15

Alright gang, all the family is here now and I'm sure it's crazy and filled up with excitement in our house, so I'll close for now.  I'll be back on Friday for Flourishes Friday and something yummy for Christmas to celebrate the Black Friday Sale at the store too.   

For my American Friends, Happy Thanksgiving.  I hope that no matter what your circumstance right now that you are able to see blessings vividly!
