Christening Card

I was asked for a christening card but it wasn't for a baby it was for a toddler so it was to be something different and somewhat fancy.  I was given a photo but the child was wearing bright yellow so would have been difficult to work with, I changed the picture to look like an old photo so it is slightly faded out at the edges and took it from there.
I cut the frame from the Spellbinders Opulent Ovals die set and used the Sunkissed Fleur range for the flowers, these were stamped and embossed then cut out with the matching dies.  The butterfly is one of a set of three from Cheery Lynn, this was coloured with the sorbet colour in the Flexmarker range as was the ribbon and the mat for the sentiment. I finished it off with some tine pearl hearts in the centre of the flowers.

I am going to enter this into the 365 Cards challenge which is vintage with a die cut, and the Delightful Challenges - Frame it.

CD Sunday - Butterfly

Good morning, hasn't it gone cold these last few days and if the forecast is anything to go by I need to get my thermals out. Perfect weather for staying in and crafting, which I have been doing but some of the things I can't show just yet.
This week over on CD Sunday we have a lovely theme of Butterfly, now Wendy chose this but is unable to join us as she is not to well so hope you feel better soon Wendy.
This is my card and it's from a Jems cd called Butterflies by Request, I made this with one of my team mates birthdays in mind, she is a bit batty about butterflies, aren't you Christine,lol.
Anyway I'm pleased to say she likes it and that is all that matters, it is printed onto matte photo paper and I think the dies are worth the effort to get them to cut, the background paper is also embosed but it doesn't show on here. The three panels are one design and I cut them out and the middle one is raised a little higher than the others.

I hope you will come and join us, the teams projects this week are stunning and you don't want to miss them.

I'm entering this into the Ooh La La challenge this week which is things with wings
