First Communion

My second upload for today. This was a "must make" card because one of my granddaughters is receiving her First Holy Communion next weekend and I had to make her a card. Sometimes the specific religious cards are a bit of a challenge because I am limited in my selection of stamps to use. In this case I used a dove stamp from one of GinaK's sets called "The Magic of Christmas". The DP is from SU. The CS colors are Sahara Sand, Ocean Mist. I used a Cuttlebug folder to make the background. The sketch is the challenge this week from Sketch Girl and the colors were chosen for the StampTV color challenge this week. It is always very exciting when a card comes together. I have 2 others in various stages on my craft table that are just a struggle. I hope to finish one of them tonight, so come back for another peek later.
