Butterfly Birthday

Hi again, I just thought you may like to see a birthday card which I made for a very dear friend in November, my friend is very partial to butterflies so hence the use of the pretty butterfly from the set called " A Touch of Nature" which was a birthday gift to me from someone very special. I saw a card similar to this posted on SCS a while ago but I think it had a concertina card. I used some of our beautiful double sided designer paper from " Le Jardin" along with a hat pin and beads from the "Pretties Kit", the velvet ribbon wasn't from SU and the "Happy Birthday was a Stamp-it stamp but the sentiment on the inside is from "A touch of Nature". I stamped all the butterflies in Choc chip before going over them with Versa mark (using the Stamp-a-Majig) and embossing them with clear embossing powder which had a little glitter mixed in it. I cut around all the top butterflies which I love. the whole card is mounted onto some "Bashful blue" card stock. Hope you like it as much as the recipient did. Lots of inky hugs from....
