Christening card for Riley

The bits and bobs to make this card, at a friend's request, were on my desk last Wednesday (on WOYWW) and this is the end result:
I used:

-A5 white card stock

- pearlised turquoise card

- two pieces of embossed white card, the top piece using a folder and the bottom one using the vertical lines on my score board

- the cutest little turquoise fabric elephant from Hobbycraft

- sentiment printed on the computer

- Nesties from the Labels 8 set to die cut the sentiment and white backing for the elephant and then drawn around and cut for the slightly larger turquoise backings (which are perfectly aligned in real life although the photo looks as if they aren't :)

- length of turquoise double faced satin ribbon tied in a bow

Thanks for calling by.

So thats wot you bought in Hobbycraft then!!! Very nice it is too.
Not not here until later in the week so I'm still on snoopy snout duty As The Doc calls it!!!!
Blogger is playing me up no end on postings. Had to do my post all in HTMl code as the other way has gone t-ts up. Took me ages to do it, pressed the button and lost the lot so had to sit and redo it.
Was hardly worth going to me bed this morning!! Don't know how I will survive doing it remotely.
