On your Communion Boy/Girl

I can't believe how fast this week has gone :(( My son was very upset today, the week is almost over, back to school on Monday!! But it's really not a vacation for us mom's right!! Except if you actually go somewhere.!!

Today I want to show you a couple of cards for Communions, that time of year will soon be upon us, April and May are full of Communions and Confirmations, I have a few myself so in preparation for's my first card!!

 I followed this sketch from Die Cuttin' Divas:

For this card I used my Spellbinders cross dies for the first time. I got them on sale a while ago purposely for these types of occasions. I think along with the embossing folder and the sketch it came out perfect!! I printed the sentiment on vellum paper and added 2 simple brads. Then to go along with the sketch I added 2 dew drops.

I also made another card, this time for a girl. I used the same concept of using an embossing folder and bards for the sentiment but this time I used a circle die instead of the rectangle on the previous card.

Here's the card:

Isn't the cross pretty!!

I will be entering the first card in the following challenges:
Die Cuttin Divas, #105 sketch (must use a die)
Loves Rubber Stamps challenge, #42 anything goes
Papertake Weekly,  anything goes
