On Your Baptism

Well, what strange weather we've had in Inverness today, sunshine, rain, hail, sleet, and finally snow, and not just a few flakes either!  It was lovely, warm spring weather just a few days ago, I'm hoping that the temperature will soon rise again.
Today's card is for an adult baptism, always such a lovely, joyful occasion.  The young lady it's for is very much a girly girl so I wanted to make it pretty with a splash of pink.
 The background and die cut flowers and butterflies were done with a Sizzix / Hero Arts stamp and die set, I coloured the stamps direct with Distress Markers and spritzed them with water before stamping for a soft, almost watercolour look.  I also added a little Star Dust Stickles to the die cut flowers and butterflies.
The crosses were cut with Spellbinders dies and gently inked with Vintage Photo Distress Ink to highlight the embossing.  The sentiment was computer generated, then die cut with a Sue Wilson banner die.
To embellish, I added some lace, some grosgrain ribbon, and a matching bow.

Leaving you with the inspiration of God's Word in Psalm 18:6 which says, "In my distress I called upon the LORD, And cried to my God for help; He heard my voice out of His temple, And my cry for help before Him came into His ears." Have a blessed weekend.
