Butterfly Birthday Wishes - Fab Friday Challenge

Hi! I have a pretty birthday card for you today. Today's card uses the Papillon Potpourri set. This set is currently part of a special this month where you receive the stamp set and the bitty butterfly punch for a 15% discount. Stop by Stampin' Up! store to the right to purchase this set and make your very own pretty cards!!! :)
Since this set was on sale I thought I would use it to make a card. I haven't used this set too much and I don't know why because the butterflies are so pretty. I also decided to play along with the Fab Friday challenge this week. This week's challenge was to use the following colors:

Instead of going with a fall card, I decided to make a fun birthday card since I need a card for my mom's birthday in a couple of weeks. The background is soft sky stamped with a circle in soft sky. The circle was a scrap from the Chalk Talk stamp set. So don't throw out your scraps since they can be used to stamp too. :) The Tangerine Tango piece was embossed with the Lattice texture embossing folder. I cut out the white cardstock with the Deco Labels framelits. Then I stamped 3 butterflies in Sahara Sand. I also colored in the centers with a blender pen and Sahara Sand ink. Then I added some dazzling diamond glitter to the edges. Next, I added Crushed Curry chevron ribbon. (I LOVE this ribbon!) Finally, I stamped the Birthday Wishes sentiment from Four You. I actually stamped this in 2 parts since it was too long for the bottom corner. I inked up the wishes part first and stamped it, then add the birthday part on top of it. I did whip out my stamp-a-ma-jig for that part, just to make sure everything was lined up. Thanks for stopping by and be sure to play along with the Fab Friday challenge!
