White Wings

I was in need of a quick card for a close friend who sadly lost her baby. I didn't know where to start so used something with wings to symbolise her Angel Baby and also the use of both pink & blue. I embossed white cardstock with white embossing powder before sponging the distress ink over the embossed image, something new for me as I usually only edge with it. To give the butterfly some dimension I embossed it on some vellum and used a matching die cut to give it flight. I spritzed both the card & vellum with glimmer mist for a subtle sparkle and added a few sequins.

Card ingredients include:

Stamps: Kaszazz Flutterby & 'Thinking of You' sentiment
Papers:  cardstock, vellum
Dies: Kaszazz Flutterby die
Other: Distress Ink (Broken China, Stormy Sky & Worn Lipstick), Sequins, Pearls, white embossing powder, Tattered Angel Pearl Glimmer Mist.

I'm playing along with:
