SweetStamps #109

Good morning my sweet friends-
This week at SweetStamps we have a really special challenge for you. 
This weeks challenge is:
We just recently baptized our goddaughter and what a blessing that was, to be chosen first of all, but to be apart of this beautiful girls life.  I have three boys and now having her in our lives, makes it that much brighter.
She is actually coming on Thursday and we are super excited!!!
Here is a picture of Mariah and I.  We took pictures after the baptism and I loved this shot.
So my project today was inspired by this day.
When I saw the challenge for "Crosses", I knew exactly what I wanted to create. 
So here is my sample for this weeks challenge.
I wanted to create a very delicate, clean and simple invitation.
The base of the invitation is a Spellbinder die.  The Fanciful  Flourish is one of my favorites, by Cheery Lynn designs, along with the flowers which came from Build a Flower #2 Embellishment Kit
Do you see the cross?  Isn't that beautiful?  I took the Cross-Small and inked it with glue ink and stamped it on the base card. I let that dry for a bit and then sprinkled Glitter Ritz: White over the top and gently rubbed it into the glue.  I LOVE this's ultra fine and leave such a soft and smooth finish.  Then to finish the invitation, I stamped You Are Invited, with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.
