Den Fyrste Song - a Baptism Card

This following card I've made for my nephew's baptism. I had been really looking forward to using this stamp from Kort&Godt - It's a Norwegian childrens song I'm really fond of. So this is what I ended up with:

The text "Til dåpsbarnet Håvard" was just printed from my computer. I really like how this card turned out, It's very babyish, I really like the blue and all the flowers. I'm also really happy about the dress. I guess this is the only time you can put a dress on a card to a boy. I'm sure I'll get to use this folding technique again sometime on a wedding card. I learned how to do it on youtube, and you can do so to by clicking this link: How to make a Pretty Dress - Origami.

These are the supplies I've used on this card:

Paper: Bazill cardstock.

Stamps: On the front I used M-107 Den Fyrste Song by Kort&Godt, and I stamped it with Tsukineko Memoto "Rich Cocoa". I also did some distressing on the front with "Ranger Tumbled Glass" Distress ink. On the inside I did some heat embossing, and the stamps I used was HCPC 2254 Leafy Swirls Precut Set by Heartfelt Creations and Cherub Tree Trio by Stampendous. To heat emboss I stamped with Ranger distress Embossing Ink, added Bridal Embossing Powder and heated it up with my heatgun.

Dies: Ribbon Tags Trio Two by Spellbinders

Punches: Martha Stewart Doily Lace Edge Punch.

Embossing folders: Cuttlebug D'vine Swirls

Flowers from Kort&Godt.

 I like playing along in challenges, so I'm adding this card to the following:
Kort & Godt: Use die cuts. Not many dies here, but at least one managed to sneak in.
Shopping Our Stash: No coloring allowed (don't color an image)
Wags 'n Whiskers: Lace (I used a MS Lace punch)

Polkadoodles: Distress It
One Stitch at a Time Challenge: Punch It
