God Bless You

Working for a Catholic school, I have seen ten years worth of second graders prepare and celebrate their First Communion.  Can you believe this is the first Communion card I have made?

This gorgeous image, called Eucharist, is a Squigglefly digi from artist Diana Garrison. Their new challenge this week at the Squigglefly Challenge Blog is to "Add some flair to your border with a punch, torn edge, deco scissors or ??? This flair can be to the edges around your image, the opening edge of your card or ALL the edges."

I gave my card a punched border using my new Creative Memories Punch System.  So far I have three different punches. The system guides whatever you're punching to perfection, as you can see!!

I colored my image with Copics, framed it with matching cardstock from the inside of the card, and popped it onto patterned paper.  A ribbon and jewels adorn my card, and I handwrote the sentiment.

Got a little girl or boy receiving their First Communion?  This is the perfect image for your card, and you can find it at the SHOP!

This is so pretty! I love the string of pearls running down the folded side of your card. You picked a lovely border to punch on the side. Now that you've got the perfect image there's no excuse for all those kids not to get a 1st communion card from you! LOL!
