Celebrate Your Birthday

Hi all ...... This card was made for a friend who just celebrated her birthday yesterday. I used the sketch from this week's challenge at Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.

To create my card I started with a purple plaid card base.  I added a piece of white card stock that I backed in purple (wild pansy) and white card stock.  I stamped the sentiment onto the white card stock.  I used 3 punches on this card... an eyelet lace border punch from Martha Stewart on the bottom portion of the strip of wild pansy card stock, a circle punch from EK Success and a butterfly punch from Martha Stewart.  I embossed the circle with a Cuttlebug dot embossing folder and backed it in wild pansy card stock. The butterflies are punched out of wild pansy card stock and I added diamond stickles to the butterflies. I also added 3 purple gems to the bottom corner of the white card stock and 3 more to the upper corner of  the card base.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
