Christening Card

So this is a Christening card for a sweet baby girl who is the granddaughter of friends of mine. The table arrangements and flowers were featuring butterflies so I kept that in mind when making the card.

Here is the box decorated with butterflies made with an X-Cut punch, a brad from The Works and butterfly circles cut with Spellbinder dies.

The card is made using an 8 x 8 inch scalloped card blank and features a Lili of the Valley stamp coloured with Promarkers and mounted onto plain and scalloped Spellbinder ovals. The background is a very pale pink Centura pearl card embossed with the Tied Together embossing folder. I have added a tiny pearl at each intersection. The sentiment was computer generated and the roses are all from Wild Orchid Crafts. I also used the stems to make the twirls and added some punched leaf branches. I used tiny butterflies (from the Spellbinder Butterfly Circles die) at each end of the sentiment and one at the top of the card. The remainder were 'sprinkled' inside the box.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
