Holy Communion Card

Hi folks!
Thought I'd share this card with you.  No challenges today but a commission instead.  Was asked to make a first Holy Communion card for my friends little boy.  My friend asked for a boy in a suit.  Unfortunately I didn't have any images or stamps that fit the bill so I set about drawing one.
This card is the largest I have made in a long time.  It's larger than A5 yet slightly smaller than A4. The patterned paper is from the DCWV luxury stack.  I embossed some pearl card with my swirly Fiskars embossing plate. The blue scalloped edge is a Doodlebugs paper frill and the ribbon is from my stash.  Lots of silver Mirri board on this card too.  The corners are a Cuttlebug die and I have used a Sizzlets alphabet, 'Night & Day' for the words.
Jake's mum is collecting it later today... hope she likes it :o)
Ciao fo now!

This is lovely Sandra. You are so talented just being able to draw an image when you have nothing that fits, I'm so envious. Your young man is very handsome. I'm sure his Mum will be absolutely thrilled.

Oh wow Sandra, what a fab card and a brilliant image so perfect for the occasion. I could have done with this lil fella a couple of weeks ago, I had to make 2 confirmation cards for a lady at work, I didn't have a scooby what to put on them and ended up trawling around google for hours on end lol! Perfect card, love it :) Donna x
