Butterfly Birthday

I have been so busy that I have been just itching to do something creative and stir up my card making mojo. This card was made using the sketch from Card Sketch A Day #238. The colors were inspired by the ribbon and I used small butterfly punches to go around the sentiment. For the flower, I used layered flower cuttlebug dies. I bent the flowers and sponged them with ink to give them a bit of a worn look and then I glued on 3 pearls that I found in a beading pack from Wal-Mart.

Ink: Stazon Black, Bashful Blue, Pixie Pink, Green Galore
