Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge #217

My mother-in-law recently asked for religious cards for baptisms and profession of faith. I knew the perfect Stampin Up stamp set to use. It's one I recently purchased and it's called "Trust God". It has such encouraging sayings in it and can be used for any occasion.
Since my in-laws will be visiting this weekend, I thought it's about time to stop procrastinating and get crafting! :)

For today's card I used a new sketch from The Sweet Stop. I discovered this sketch challenge blog not too long ago and I think it's a great source for inspiration! Here's the sketch for this week:

I picked a sentiment/saying and used it as the central image of the card. I chose Marina Mist, Certainly Celery and Midnight Muse as the main colours. Here's how it turned out:


The edges of the polka dot designer paper are distressed and I added a 'splatter' over the sentiment. The doily adds some detail to this simple design and small blue buttons embellish the card. I think it makes a great card for a baby boy's baptism or it could even be used for a baby shower. 

Thanks for stopping by!
