Baby Christening Card

Hi everyone! It's time for another challenge over  at Mo's Digital Pencil Too but first I would like to thank all of you who played along for the last 4 challenges cause I was responsible for the themes... hehe. We've had lots of fun, so why not keep it that way and join another fun challenge this time picked by our most wonderful teamie Elaine:

Isn't that funny? I love playing with paper scraps, don't you? So, it's time for you to put together some bits and pieces of paper or whatever crosses your mind and come up with a patchwork somewhere on your card. If you need some inspiration you'll get plenty on the challenge blog so you'd better head there after taking a look at my card.

It's a card I made on request and I can tell you lots of paper and stitching went into this. Not to mention the time:). At first, I expected to use scraps but my scraps didn't fit the theme, so I ended up using lots of papers, although you can't tell it. Still, I expect you to go for scraps this time:)
The card/box card is 1 inch thick; so in case you would like to try this shape, I recommend you make it thinner, say half an inch, depends on how high your embellishing is.
I used my favorite baby boy image, it's just perfect for the occasion. You can find it here in Mo's store; of course there's a bald baby version and a girl version too:)
The sentiments are in Romanian and mean: "Congratulations" and "Your baby boy was born; Be ready for a love greater than life!"
I also added patchwork on the front of the card ; the shape is cut with Go Kreate dies.

Materials and tools used:
Stamp: Mo Manning: Baby Boy
Papers: MME- Stella and Rose, Cosmo Cricket- Togetherness, Prima- Madeleine
Embellishments: flowers and ribbon from Wild Orchid Crafts
Dies: Go Kreate Frilly Frame, nestabilities label?, Magnolia Doohikey Tilda lace die, Martha Stewart butterfly punch and nestabilities lacey circle die
Tools: Big Shot (yes, somehow, I managed to squeeze my Go Kreate die into my Big Shot:)), My Singer sewing machine- got to mention it because it did all the
Misc: bling, glitter, distress inks;
Sentiments: computer generated

I will enter my card in the following challenges:
Digital Tuesday - We Like To Party (Any Celebration); Partytime Tuesdays - Shaped Cards; Fab 'n' Funky -  diecuts/punches; Paper Take Weekly - Anything Goes; Card Cupids - Anything Goes (create any card and then give it away to spread some joy); Paper Sundaes - Lots of Layers; Sentimental Sundaysmust include a Sentiment - Sewing or Stitching;  The Crafty Pad - One for the Boys; 2 Sisters -Fancy Folds,

Look forward to see your creations; I'm really curious about your interpretations of the theme!
Wish you all a great rest of your week!
