Confirmation card

I made this confirmation card for my parents to give to my nephew (did that make sense?) and it would be perfect for DCD's challenge Teenage boy in blue and green but I can't enter :(

I had to fiddle a while to mask away the christmas ornament and instead make him hold a cross but I think it was worth it in the end.

Well, I will enter the following challenges instead:

Craftalicious - Monotone

Polka Doodles - Male theme

Crafts and me - Friends and family

Whiff of Joy - photo inspiration (I ignored the red cabinets and focused on the table and flowers)

One stop craft challenge - One for the boys
