Baptism card for "Anything Goes" Whimsical Wednesday Challenge

 Today we celebrated my Nephews little girl "Paige Gracie" Baptism.
 I found this beautiful Gate fold SVG over at  Monica's Creative Room As soon as I saw it, I knew I just had to make it.
The reason I choose this cut for the card is that the meaning of Baptism is
"The door to the church"
Once baptized a person becomes a member of the church and this will be Paige's first steps into church.
 The shoes were cut at 3 inches using Kate's ABC's Cricut Cartridge.
 I used coloured beads to create the baby's name and some pink satin ribbon for the bows.
The poem was created off my computer from a poem I found on the Internet. I love the way the card turned out and hope Theresa and Jesse are just as pleased as I am.
 I will be entering it into a couple of my favorite challenge blogs. 
 Whimsical Wednesday  this weeks challenge is "Anything Go's!"
My Sheri Craft Challenge #77 New things
My new things were a Gate Fold Card and using a text box in my word program, to create the poem. I am a little stupid when it comes to computers and was tickled pink when I saw this on another blog earlier this week.
