Baby Christening Box/Card

Hi there sweet peeps! I only realize how quickly time flies when we're having a new challenge at Mo's Digital Pencil Too:). So, it's Thursday and  our monthly

challenge, perfect occasion to play with your Mo images without restraint!

I made a Christening box, this one was a request, gotta tell you I love the way it turned out so I might have to make something similar in the future:

I printed the images on 300 gr heavy cardstock and adhered them to another sheet of heavy cardstock before cutting them off. Thus,, they are really sturdy. I always add lots of cardstock in my layering, I don't want them to bend or anything, I think they'll also have to stand the test of time.
The Cherry Lynn heart die is placed between two acetate sheets then sewn to the card. I thought a picture of the baby would look nice beneath it. The images are all part of a set called Diaper Crew, I think they are all so sweet and funny. 

There's a dummy attached to the ribbon but since it's blue one can hardly notice it:) The woodenm elements are all from a set I found at my local store. I think cream works beautifully with blue.

Images: Mo Manning- Diaper Crew
DP: The Paper Shelter- Love and Letter- digital
Coloring medium: copics,promarkers
Embellishments: dummy and wooden elements from local store- I think - Cart Us; ribbon, sparkiling rhinestone and flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, flowers from IAM Roses
Die-cuts: Cheery Lynn-Heart to heart die, 
Sentiment: computer generated- says: "Congratulations! Your baby boy was born! Be prepared for a love greater than life!" I just love this sentiment, so very true...

Here's a detail:

I would like to enter my box in the following challenges:
House That Stamps Built - Anything but a card, Bearly Mine - Flowers Galore, Creative Card Crew - Fancy Folds, Creative Craft Challenges -Special Occasion NOT Birthday , Die Cuttin' Divas - Anything Goes, Card Mania - Baby , Craft My Life - "Show what can you create",  Paper Shelter Challenge - anything goes

Hope you could find some inspiration in my Christening box,:), look forward to see what you will prepare for us this week! Don't forget, Mo has a 5$ gift to her store for every 25 entries! Wooohooo! So, what are you waiting for?:)

Thank you so much for your lovely words! Your feedback means the world to me!
