Birthday Card

This week's challenge at 2 Sisters Challenges is ANYTHING GOES.  To create my card I used this adorable Elisabeth Bell stamp that was free in a magazine I just purchased. 

To create my card I started with a kraft card base and layered a blue floral patterned paper on the top half of the card and a blue dot patterned paper on the bottom half of the card.  The patterned papers were also a free gift with the magazine.  I added a piece of kraft card stock and punched the bottom edge using an eyelet lace border punch.  I added a piece of blue glitter ribbon tape to the top of the piece of kraft card stock.  I colored the image using Spectrum Noir pens and backed it in light blue, kraft and then white.  I stamped the sentiment on white card stock and backed that in light blue and then kraft and added it to the bottom corner of the image.  I added 3 baby blue rhinestones to the upper corner of the image and crystal stickles to the center of the flower on her headband.  I then punched 3 butterflies out of light blue card stock and 3 more out of white and layered a blue onto a white.  I added crystal stickles to the butterflies and mini clear rhinestones to the center of each one.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
