Bright and Cheery

I'm not a butterfly person but I had to get this dp because it's so pretty. I knew it would go with some of my cardstock so I would use it eventually. I had no idea what occasion I would end up using it for and I must admit this is an unusual one! I'm not a traditional or conventional person at all so you shouldn't be surprised that this is a card for my niece's baptism. We weren't able to travel to Scotland for the occasion last month but she'll be here for U.S. Thanksgiving next week and I can't wait to give her the little blue box. ;) She's only 7.5 months old so it'll be a while before she appreciates the card and the Tiffany necklace but I know that my sister will make sure it goes in her scrapbook and jewellery box. Have a wonderful weekend everyone! :D
