Butterfly Birthday

I made a birthday card for a cousin of mine whom I have not seen since high school. We reconnected a few years ago, and her birthday is in a couple of days, so I put on my thinking cap and came up with something I hope she likes.

Starting out with white cardstock, I embossed a piece of light blue paper (Cuttlebug Swiss Dots EF), then laid a cutout from the Fiskars big AdvantEdge Floral Cartridge. It is spray painted with iridescent glitter mist for some extra sparkle. The label is a cutout from the Picturesque Cricut Cartridge, and stamped on it is "hope your day is as happy as happy gets (Stampin' Up)." The edge of it is lined with iridescent glitter. The butterfly is from Spellbinders Wonderful Wings. I put some blue liquid pearls on it to dress it up a bit. Last, but not least, a little gingham blue and white bow is attached to the sentiment.

Here is the card:
