Happy Birthday Jan

Today is my good friend and fellow crafter Jan's birthday.
I wanted to make Jan a really special card and didn't have much inspiration.
I looked back at some photos that I took at our Quarterly Training get together
and found this design, which I believe is one of Julie's.

I really love this Attic Boutique DSP and the colours are so delicate.
The sentiment is an all time favourite from "Oval All".
The colour combo is Pool Party, Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla 
with a touch of Daffodil Delight.
The Butterfly is die cut using Beautiful Wings embosslit, 
The flower is mad by scrunching and dampening punched flowers using the Boho Blossoms punch.
I used the Adorning Accents edgelits and Embossing folder and Adorning Accents Edgelits Dies
to achieve this beautiful curve in Crumb Cake.
For the paper ribbon border I used the  Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch,
For the obligatory bling I used Basic pearls for the butterfly's body and head
and for the flower centre.
