Happy birthday Jean

Yesterday I showcased a card my friend Jean had made,
today is her birthday, so I am showing you the birthday card I have made for her. 

I used the Textured Impressions Delicate Designs Embossing folder
to make the lacy border and sponged the embossing with Pistachio Pudding ink.
I wrapped a length of (retired) Pistachio Pudding Stretch Ruffle Trim around the card.
I also sponged a Tea Lace Paper Doily with Pistachio Pudding ink,
then punched a1.3/4" a scalloped circle in white and glued on top,
then on top of this I punched out the Sentiment  using the Label Bracket Punch.
The sentiment was stamped using the Tag Talk stamp set with Pistachio Pudding ink.
The butterflies were stamped using the Papillon Potpourri stamp set, the small one
in Smoky Slate and the large one in Pistachio Pudding.
These were then puched out using the Bitty Butterfly and Elegant Butterfly punches.
Tiny rhinestones for embellishments.
Happy Birthday Jean - hope you are having a lovely day!
