Butterfly Baby

Morning Everyone,

I needed to make a Christening Card and with the theme this week set as "The Great Whites", was perfect for my card.  I chose one of the latest edition Little Darling Rubber Stamps by Saturated Canary called Beautiful Baby, isn't she gorgeous and so was little baby Lillie, so cute and such she was so good, even when the water was poured over her head, bless.  So as you can see I have used lots of white embellishments which was perfect for a Christening card.

I took the photo's with a white background but didn't feel that this justified the card, so I took some with a black background too, would love to know which you liked.

I have used the Maja Design Limited Edition Sofiero "Enjoying the lovely fragrance" as it was a very soft pink.  And don't forget all the new Maja Design Autumn Basics are now in store.  The image was coloured with distress markers.

The whites was made easy with the floral collections that LLC now carry, wild orchid crafts rose buds, large rose bud,  medium gardenia, Lily, 10cm open roses and the gorgeous white flower spray and foam flowers.  I also added some shabby white frantage to the larger butterflies.

I have also added a Magnolia white angel amongst the flowers and some of the latest Lace Amelie.

I have used a Melissa Frances Resin Chiswick Frame and coated it in some white gesso, which I also added around the card and flowers.  The little black and white butterfly was cut out from the PionDesign Vintage Wedding sheet.

Here's a picture using the Melissa Frances 6 inch Flower Hanger.

 I also took a couple of pictures against a black background so the whites would stand out as the card looks much better irl.

There is a tag at the top of the card using the Magnolia Doohickey Wrapped So lovely die and this popped into a mini white paper bag.
