First Holy Communion Card

hello friends!!
wow - what can I say apart from a huge huge thank you for all the comments on my recent Twilight card.  I must admit I don't watch the programme - I have heard of it and the films but its not my cup of tea.

So thanks to each and everyone of you who left a comment. much appreciate each and every one of them.

Anyway here's to today's card. This is a commission card for a First Holy Communion card. Now not being religious in the slightest even though hubby is Catholic I wasn't too sure what to do.
Luckily the ever so kind friends on Docrafts came to my rescue sending me crosses and hands and embossed backgrounds. I couldn't believe the help I received.
so a huge thank you to Peter, Mel, Ann, Maureen and Anne for all the crosses and hands and other items so kindly sent.

So this is the card I made. The background is from Peter and so is the cross. I tried to do a combination of all the crosses sent by every single person but this one matched better.
I have no idea what the background is called but its beautiful.

The wording was done on the PC using an Edwardian font and done in silver to match the mirri card.
here is a close up of the main image

I added a single diamante gem to the centre of the cross for a bit of sparkle.

I hope the sender likes it and hopefully Emily does too.

thanks for dropping by as always and any comments. I read and respond to each and everyone of them.

hugs always until next time
