Christening Card Number 2

Well what a week I've had making these two cards my brother and his partner wanted me to make for a couple of christenings. My brother said to just put the little girls' name and a flower on the cards, so I did try but you know when you just can't get into the swing of things and you're not enjoying what you're making, that was me. I don't know how many times I've cut their names out and I've wasted so much paper. My brother isn't keen on Magnolia stamps, he things they are weird as they don't have faces! I was getting really fed up, nothing was going the way I wanted it to, so darling brother a bit of tough luck cos Tilda it is, ha ha ha. So much for just having the little girls name on the card eh?
Once I had decided which Tilda would look the best on a christening card, that was it everything else just seemed to fall into place and I was back enjoying myself!! Thank you Tilda!! I've tried to take a close up of Tilda's wings, so I'm not sure if you can see but I've even been Parching! I stamped Tilda onto parchment paper twice, using Cotton White Stazon, embossed the wings, cut them out and decoupaged them. I'm always puzzled how to do wings, so I'm really pleased with how they turned out.
Here's everything else I used:
Stamp - Flying Tilda, coloured with Promakers.
Pearls and little roses - Say It In Pearls by Prima
Paper - Blueberry Hill by Papermania.
Cardstock - Centura White by Crafters Companion.
Deckled Oval Nesties.
Cuttlebug Alphabet dies.
Clear Star and white gel pen - Sakura.
Victorian Velvet Distress Ink.
Pink paper lace, crochet flower and heart brad all from my stash.
I'm entering into these Challenges:
Magnolia Down Under, their challenge this week is "Swirly Swirls".
Stamp With Fun, who has a theme of Myst/Fairytales.
