A Christening card

Hi guys, recently I made a Christening card for a baby boy using two gorgeous stamps from Magnolia,
The image is coloured with my distress re-inkers as is the background, layered onto circle and scalloped circle nesties the layered onto a gorgeous Joy crafts doily type die, I embossed this through my E bosser using my embossing mat,
the papers are Maja design from live and love crafts and the blue  flowers were from Teresa at my crafty heart these I have just added a little gesso too, other flowers are WOC and stash, 
Inside I added this stamp again coloured with my distress re-inkers and i die cut his name to make it more personal and machine stitched the edges of the papers,
For the rest of the inside I used the same circle nesties and Joy crafts die to tie these in, the text I computer generated,
view showing card open on the inside both sides,
They loved it and are going to frame it they said!!! I'm just so glad they liked it as I don't know about you but I never feel my cards are good enough!!!!
Front view again,
