Today's Challenge

This is for today's sketch challenge at scs. It is also for my dd's baptism, this weekend. I stamped "Sometimes you're the bug" from clear dollar stamps, adding the cross and "saved" on license plate from the matching set, "Heaven Bound". I colored the image, using copics, stardust pens and a glaze pen. The base of the card is taken with teal layered with certainly celery, bayou blue and this really cute basic grey dp (notice it has lady bugs on it). I cut the squares along the bottom using a coordinating basic grey dp then matted them with taken with teal and black. I tied this ribbon around it (can't remember where I got it, but isn't it pretty?). I cut the bug out and mounted it with dimensionals. Then I stamped the sentiment on certainly celery and punched it with the small oval punch, matting it with the large oval in taken with teal. I added a few primas and a dew drop, just because it need SOMETHING! The inside says "best taken with God". I sponged all the layers, including the sentiment with bayou blue very lightly. I just dabbed it heavily in ink and with the card laying flat on my su grid pad, I dab the sponge along the edge, just to give it a speckled, distressed look to match the BG DP!

That is such a clever and original baptism card. I love the number plate and cross in the window. Mind you, adult (as in anything other than infant) baptism is the exception here so you don't often see anything suitable for anyone other than a baby, but I think this is wonderful.
