On Mila's Baptism Day!

My beautiful little grand niece, Mila, was Christened a week ago and, of course, Aunt Julia had to make a special card to mark the occasion!
 I found this beautiful digital image through a posting by Daizy-Mae on Split Coast.  It's a digital image from Beccys Place.  Like Daizy -  I printed the image twice, cut out the dress from one and layered it over the first printing.  I colored the image with Copics.  The sentiment is from Special Blessings by Stampin' Up.(I think it's been retired)

Here's what I stamped on the inside of the card using stamps from Bitty Baby Blessings and Everyday Blessings from Papertrey Ink.
Here is Mila (pronounced Mee-la) with her Mum, Dad and Godparents being made Christ's own.



And here she is chillin' out at home celebrating her 2nd month (couldn't you just eat her up!?!)

This is the engraved frame I gave Mila along with her card.


!
 I've given these frames to all the babies in my family so far.  It has all the birth information engraved on it - a wonderful keepsake for them.  I got it at Things Remembered at the Mall.

Thanks for indulging me today!

Hi Julia,
What a pretty card! I love your tradition with the engraved frame . . . My family tradition was (past-tense) to give savings bonds to seed a college fund but that is so much harder to do and doesn't go far. This sweet memory is perfect! I think I'll "steal" your idea! I'd love to imitate that darling card,too - you are so creative!
Hugs!
