Magnolia Christening Card

Good morning bloggers. I'm back with yet another card to share with you all.
And just a warning that this post is photo heavy - it's been a while since I made anything so froufrou and frilly, and I wanted to capture it all as proof :)

I was asked to make a Christening card for a girl, I always struggle with these as we're not a bit religious and I have no idea what to put on them! Apparently she likes is, so I must have done okay.
The first photo shows the card with the flash on, just to capture all the added sparkle.

 Love how the pale pink tulle has it's own little sparkle - thanks Autumn!
Here it is without the sparkle.
I'm entering the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp - Buttons (2nd Entry)
All That Scraps - Anything Goes
Just Magnolia - Anything with added Pearls & Lace
Simply Magnolia - Buttons & Lace

You're probably all wondering where my 'Lace' is? Well, it's paper lace! I just couldn't incorporate any of my laces onto the card so used MS Eyelet Lace BP instead.. and technically it's a paper lace doily! Here's some photos of the bits close up...

 I ♥ Sleeping Baby Tingla! A top 5 Magnolia stamp for me!!
The hearts are a Cuttlebug die, and that gorgeous paper is Memorybox Gossamer pack. The pink at the back is a sheet that has gorgeous sparkly clouds on it - but I covered over them all :)
And the flowers are WOC. Oh, the little pearl stamens came from Autumn too!! Such a sweetheart she is x.
So it's been a while since I added flowers, and I still prefer to use the much smaller sized ones - guess that means I'll have to order some more!!

Thanks for stopping by today. I'm going to put together some bits and pieces and make a Mini Christmas Candy... so check back later (or in few days!!)

oh, I've just seen that I can enter this into Paper Sundaes RECTANGLES challenge too!!

Oooooh, awwww, Loz you've gone all girlie and it's beautiful hun, everything is so pretty and perfect, love it.
Re the papers - 2 years Loz, that's terrible !!!!!!!!!!! I'm shrieking that can you hear me down there woman, take the scissors to them, there's no point having pretty papers and not getting the benefit of their beauty. You have no idea how long I had to keep telling myself that when poised with Pion paper & paper trimmer lol
hugs Mandy xx

Beautiful card Loz I'm not surprised the recipient loves it.
I especially love all the detail and the colours are superb. Reminds me I should use my heart die at some point too.
