A 60th Birthday and a Christening Card

Firstly I want to say a big hello and thank you to all my new followers.  I joined a new networking/bloggers group this week and the response and friendliness of all the ladies has blown me away along with the wonderful creations and inspiration that I have found on all their blogs too.

I had another special order this week to create which was a 60th Birthday Card for the customers sister and a Christening Card for her grandson.  Here is what I ended up with.

The number sixty is from the Milestone Shaped Number Cards Cutting File Set from The Cutting Cafe.  I printed this and cut it out by hand,.  The papers/cardstock and stamps except for the Purple Polka Dot Paper are all Stampin' Up.  I made this into an Easel Card.

The Circular Sentiment Stamp is from Unity Stamps.  Once again my photo isn't the clearest.  It was taken at the same time as the card from yesterdays post, plus my camera never likes to show purples True to color.  For those of you familar with Stampin' Up Colors the Purples are Elegant Egg Plant, Orchid Opulence and Rich Razzleberry.

This card was made playing along with the following Challenges.

Cards and More - #56 Purple/White/Flowers
Crazy for Challenges - #C4C137 - Birthday Cards
Hooked on Crafts - #20 - Flowers

For the Christening Card I was going for a more CAS Style and Elegant look.  I used some Bazzill White embossed cardstock base with a touch of Blue.  I had a big blue satin ribbon in my stash so put this to use along with the blue bow and the butterfly bling.  The die cut frame housing the word Christening is from Spellbinders I simply cut off the bottom decorative edge.  I simply layered some blue punched ovals and circles behind this to add further color.  

This card I am entering into the following CAS Card Challenges:

Less is More:  #68 Baby Cards
Casual Fridays:  #CFC53 Punches and Dies

This week I have learned not to leave taking photos to the minute right before you are due to go out the door to deliver them to the customer.  What looked like a clear shot on the camera doesn't always turn out so once on the computer.   Thanks for stopping by I hope you are having a wonderful week.

Almost forgot - I have a question for you, What is Black and White and Yellow with lots of Polka Dots and high heels?

Have I got you stumped?  Be sure to pop back tomorrow to find out the answer!
