butterflies and music

I thought we would have a we break from the black magic cards (yes I still have one to show you hee hee) and so here is a more delicate card. I made this for my niece (she's 16) who is getting baptised on this Sunday and I thought it would be nice to give her a few words on a card.
I had to use blue cause that's her favourite colour and she is really into music (what 16 year old doesn't ??) but I thought the addition of butterflies would give it a 'uplifting' effect. The lovely Hope and Strength stamp set which Stampin' Up! is using to support Breast Cancer Research - has the beautiful big butterfly stamp and the lovely words of encouragement that I stamped directly on the music DSP from Newsprint. Adding lace (which is fashionable to wear if you are 16 - who knew! lol) and blinging it with shimmer paint and pearls just finishes it off.
