Butterflies for a Birthday

I was inspired by a card  I found recently on Amy  Bollman's blog.  The colors as well as the pretty layout were CASED although some elements were modified when I made my card.

I added texture on the large circles by running card stock through some embossing folders and  then punching out the circles.
The Basic Rhinestones provide the perfect bling on each butterfly.  Each element uses the same three colors: Calypso Coral, Pool Party, and Summer Starfruit.
The birthday sentiment is from Elementary Elegance, a retired Sale-a-bration set.
Other supplies are:
Papillion Potpourri Stamp set
Elegant Butterfly punch
1" and 1 1/4" circle punches
Bitty Banners Framelits
Pool Party, Calypso Coral, and Summer Starfruit card stock and Inks
Whisper White card stock for the card base
Square Lattice, Perfect Polka Dots, &  Houndstooth Embossing Folders
Vintage Faceted Designer Buttons
1/4" white grosgrain ribbon, dyed with sponge and Pool Party ink pad
Every Day Enchantment brads, retired.

This is a wonderful card for butterfly fanatics!  I hope you have fun with them, too.
