Butterfly Christening

When my friend Maria asked me to make a Christening card for her Grand daughter using butterflies I wasn't sure what I was going to do.
After thinking it over for a couple of weeks. Here is the finished card.
I stamped the butterfly (by Stampendous) all over white cardstock using Memories Angelic Pink Chalk Ink. I also stamped one in gold ink and embossed with Egyptian Gold sparkly embossing powder. Using they same ink and powder I did the sentiment (PSX).
Next I cut out the sentiment using the petite oval nestabilities, and cut out the butterfly with an x-acto knife
I painted the butterfly with Twinkling H2O's in 2 shades of pink. Then added some antennae made from artistic wire.
I layered it altogether using Bazzill cardstock, some pink ribbon and finally embellished with some pearls and a floral swirl cut from a Spellbinder die.
I think my friend will be very pleased.
This is my last post for several weeks as I am off on vacation to the United States. Talk to you all when I get back
Until Next Time
Inking of you all
