Baby Boy Baptism

My fiance´s aunt asked me to make a card for
a baptism. This is what I came up with.
The baby´s mother is my fiance´s cusin,
and I was so disappointed when she told me what
she was going to name the baby. Completely irrational,
but Håkon was the name we had as a backup in case
Sofie was a boy, and we always intended to use it if we
ever had a boy. It was the name of his grandfather,
and the middle name of his father, so it would have been
very special to use. But hey, we have no guarantee of
ever having a boy, I'm not even pregnant, so we just
have to be to have a little Håkon in the family. :)

The papers I have used are from Maja Design and Magnolia.
I used a square doily, lace and cheese cloth from Ribbon Girl.
The flag pole is a paper straw, I added a blue crown pin
to the top. 

The big metal corners was embossed,
and I used flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.
The film strip and leaf dies are from Tim Holtz. 

The big flower is from Prima. The die swirl-leaf was embossed,
painted white, I added pearls and then covered it with Star Dust Stickles.
I added some acrylic paint to all the flowers.  

I seem to have forgotten how to paint, so I had to try twice to
get a proper image. Guess I need to color more.
I used Distress Reinkers.
Aaand I am totally in love with embossing.
I used a Magnolia Swirl Stamp and embossed white around the edges,
before I added chunky white Frantage and embossed some more...
I also used Chalkboard Glimmer Mist, and Star Dust Stickles. 

The letters are dies from Memory Box.

Oh MY!!! This is just the most beautiful baby boy card!! Your colouring is fabulous Anne, and you always add the perfect embellishments.
Hakon is a lovely name and I can understand you would be a little disappointed if you had wanted to use the name in the future.

Big hugs to you
Love Elaine xxx

Inspite of your dissapointment you made a lovely card, very delicate and with beautiful coloring. I can understand the dissapointment though, recognize it. My daughter wanted to call her child Emma, and two weeks before the birth one of her friends gave birth to a daughter... Emma! Well... My granddaughter is a lovely Emmy!! 😃
