Confirmation...



My MIL s partner needed a confirmation card for his grandson for today. So I intitally thought church or cross, but then I remembered my sweet Edwin. Well I think he is just perfect for this type of card. The papers are from the Magnolia wedding collection. The white stock I stamped in grey with the Whimsy Stamps swirl stamp from Raindrop Echo' s sentiment set. I made the sentiment and date digi. The flourishes at the top are Spellbinders and the leaf and flower die is a Magnolia doohickey. I finished it off with a simple ribbon and cross charm. I also added a cross brad to the inside. Edwin is coloured with distress inks on 300g Windpower watercolour paper.
I am entering my card at...
