Baptism Invites

I tried to create some pretty invitations for my daughters baptism.  I really struggled with this one because I wanted the card to be mostly white and simple, but still pretty and elegant.  I think that I was finally able to create the card that I intended.  I was so happy with the final results but so very disappointed in the pictures.  I tried taking pictures at different times of day with different lights, no lights, every which way I could imagine but I could not get one shot that showed of the simple beauty of the card.  (I took 109 pictures and these are the 3 best, thank goodness for digital cameras!)   The card was made using the shimmery white cardstock and sprayed with 5 complete coats of shimmer paint spray.  I would spray them all wait a minute for them to dry before spraying them again.  The cards really shimmered!
