Confirmation Invitations

Hi everyone, today I have an invitation card to share with you.  These are invitations I made for my son's Confirmation.  I think they came out just the way I planned and I am very pleased with them.  I had put a little white bow where the little leaves are now, but both my son and my husband thought it made it look girlie and Heaven forbid that that should happen! :) I really struggled to come up with something manly to balance the little dove and in the end I decided to just add the little leaves since the background was embossed with a leafy pattern too.

 
Once again, I used the Marianne creatables die for the blue mat and the embossed one. The embossing folder I used is a Cuttlebug folder called Victoria. The bible is also a Marianne creatable. I sponged it with Mememto Desert Sand ink. "Brian's Confirmation" and the little flourish was made with MSWord. The ribbon is from my stash. The leaves were punched out with a MS punch. The little dove is a 3D sticker from Jolee's Boutique called Wedding Dove Borders.  It is a border with 20 doves on it but once cut individually they worked perfectly for my card to symbolize the Holy Spirit.  The cross is actually confirmation confetti but was just the right size for this bible. I added the tiny blue gem for a little bit of sparkle while still keeping it "manly" :-)

 
For the inside I typed out all the information on MSWord, then printed it on cardstock and cut it out using the same Marianne die.
 
That is all for today.  I hope you enjoyed your visit and liked what you saw. I would appreciate your comment on this card as with all other cards.
 
Till next time,
Lena
