A Simple 'Happy Birthday'

There are a few challenges I would like to enter the above
CAS Birthday card into...
but first let me tell you how I made it...
I used white card stock as my base and for the embossing.
which is a Kaisercraft leaves folder. - cut with
CUTplorations Crazy Double Running Stitched Die
I framed that with gold paper.
The butterfly is cut from gold vellum and
white card stock. I spritzed the white with
SU Champaigne Mist from
CUTplorations Flutter Zen 2 Layered Die
Sentiment is from SU and cut with MFT Stitched Die.
The butterfly sentiment and embossed background
are all popped.
Added a pearl to the centre of the butterfly to finish.

These are the challenges -
AAA Cards - Embossing

Cards 4 Galz - Challenge #47 Add Texture
STAMPlorations CAS Challenge - Feminine Colours



# And a late one at The Paper Players

Thanks so much for popping in.
