Commissioned Christening Card

This card was commissioned by
my friend Claire (the ex train buddy)
& recipient of the dog canvas
a few posts below.
 
My design brief was non religious christening
with a theme Peter Rabbit.
 
Here's what I came up with.
Have to say, I'm quite proud of this!
 
First image is  a sleeve to
cover the card.
