FMS88 & PP148

Our Little Lucas was being Dedicated today at church! Grand babies are such a blessing from the Lord.
The sketch I found at Freshly Made was perfect for my card. And my card also went along with the challenge at Paper Players...although I wasn't creating an actually Summer Holidays card, this card definetely depicts what we love to do as a family ..... camping and beaching!

I really didn't have anything that is actually for a Sunday Dedication Service, but a little boy playing in the sand is totally what my little guys love to do, and I really don't think Lucas will be any different when he gets a little older, so this was actually perfect for my card for him

As you can see, I flipped the card sketch and opted for my embossing folder to show the long vertical focal point of the sketch. I'm really pleased with my card...but looks So much nicer! Now if we could just get some nice hot June weather that we're all used to having...still feels like spring at home!
