LOTV Rocking Horse

Good evening, crafty blogger's.
I hope you are well?
A work colleague of my husband has asked me to make 9 cards. 7 Christmas cards. a baby's first Birthday card and a Christening card.
I am going to be very busy for the next few weeks. Lol!!!
It was very difficult to choose from all of the gorgeous LOTV baby stamps on their website but, I decided to go with Rocking Horse 
Here is the Christening card.

The image is stamped with Memento rich cocoa ink onto Neenah cardstock and cut out using a CartUs circle and matted onto a Spellbinders stately circle.
I have coloured the image with Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils.

For my shaped card I used GoKreate large frame frilly #2 and Maja Design Vintage Spring Basics papers.
Other dies used are La - La - Land heart doily border and filigree corner. Cheery Lynn french pastry doily, Marianne Designs Creatables clock, Doohickey jungle leaves and Memory Box simple banner.
I have inked the die cuts with Tim Holtz tea dye distress ink.
The lace across the bottom is from Live & Love crafts and the rose organza trim is from 
The Ribbon Girl.
I cut the simple banner with Maja paper and cut out the letters to spell Ethan with Pion studio of memories design paper.
I have computer generated the Christening day sentiment and matted it onto a 
Spellbinders beaded circle. The 3mm white pearls are from my crafty stash.
The baby shirt charm is from Live & Love Crafts. I have brushed some white modelling paste onto it.

I used flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and The Ribbon Girl for the arrangements.

Here is a close up of Rocking Horse. So sweet!

Inside the card is decorated with Maja paper and a Spellbinders stately circle.

Hubby's work colleague loved the card.

I am entering my creation into the following super challenges;
