A christening card

This is only the second Christening card I have ever made and the first 8 x 8 card I have ever made. I was asked to make it pink and immediately knew I would use this gorgeous image from WOJ, which I was lucky enough to win just before last Christmas. The papers are all K&Co Hopscotch, aren't they yummy. I used my new MS PATP punches, I am loving this set. Flowers are Wild Orchid. I wanted to make it really soft and girly and shiny so added some pearls, lace and pins and of course glitter to her wings.

This card is for a lot of challenges:
Truly Scrumptious sketch
Stamp Something Something cute
Oh Alice Sparkle and shine
A pocket full of posies Floral fantasy
Die cut dreams Pearls and pins
Magical Monday Lace
Wild Orchid Pearls and pins
Oldie but a goodie New beginnings
Creative inspirations Lace and sparkle
Flutter by Wednesday Pink
Whiff of Joy Layers
Craft your days away Girly and glittery
