Darla's baptism

In our church we practice infant baptism.  On Sunday, parents who are not members of our church brought their year old daughter to be baptized.  This is a cause for celebration and most definitely a new beginning.  These colors are not very frilly/feminine for a little girl, but I wanted to use some of the DP from the Paper Studio Faith collection - I think the butterscotch cs helps to lighten it.  I used the Spellbinder Majestic Elements ovals,  I am trying different ways to use this set.  You can see that i used a middle sized die for the main verse.  The layer under is cut with the same die and the next larger - which creates two pieces.  I put them back together with tiny bits of scotch tape., and adhered this to the bg square.  Oh, yes - I used a piece of DP the same color as the square with crosses - since I wanted contrast I sponged burgundy ink to match the DP designs.  The scallops are a Martha Stewart punch,  The main verse is SU, and the blessings is a part of a sticker from Dazzles (Hot off the Press.)  I have a special verse for the inside, including her name.
Uplifting verse:
Yellow (butterscotch):
Lots of layers:
Ink on paper:
