Christening Day

Good morning everyone hope everyone is well. Yesterday we went to a lovely christening for one of my friends Great Grandson Henry Arlo we had a great afternoon after a beautiful christening ceremony.
My friend asked me a while ago to make a special christening card for her so as the day is over now I'm sharing it with you
I used what I consider to be the best stamp ever for a christening card by Lili of the Valley so here it is
