Baby blue

For baby Edith





















For this card I played with different shades of purple, blue and turquoise. I made two of the three backgrounds myself (look below if you want to save one or both of them). I made this card for Baby Edith's baptism day. I didn't want to make a typical kind of baptism card, with crosses and such. Instead I wanted to focus on the person, who is being celebrated. That is baby Edith. Not baby Jesus.


Kofi Annan once said: "To live is to choose. But to choose well, you must know who you are and what you stand for, where you want to go and why you want to get there." As a little child, you start with small things; you pick your favourite toy and eventually you pick your own socks. You know what? It all starts with socks. (Or in the struggle between a well-meaning parent who is trying to put your socks on, and you who keep insisting on pulling them off.)
