Butterfly Baby

Morning Everyone,

We went to a family Christening yesterday so I needed to make a card so I chose to use one of the latest edition Little Darling Rubber Stamps Saturated Canary Beautiful Baby, isn't she gorgeous and so was little baby Lillie.  The theme this week that we will be following at LLC is "The Great Whites".  So as you can see I have used lots of white embellishments which was perfect for baby Lillie's  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 MayaDesign Limited Edition Sofiero "Strolling Down Rose Path" as it was a very soft pink and I coloured the image in 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 and white gesso to the flowers, circle frame, clay heart and around the card.

I have also added a Magnolia white angel amongst the flowers and some of the latest Lace Amelie with some Melissa Frances shabby white frill in the centre.

I have used a Melissa Frances Resin Chiswick Frame and coated it in some white gesso. 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.

Absolutely gorgeous Tracy, I love all of the embellishments that you put on a card.
I think it pops out more with the black background.
