Butterfly Happy Birthday

This was meant to be a quick card but still took me an hour to fiddle. I really like the end results though and glad I perceived.
I have used black leather craft card for the base card. The background paper which I think is fantastic was a magazine giveaway. I used my scalloped nesties on black leather craft and I think bazzill, light blue with a shimmer. Now the bit that took my time. I love these butterflies but I also like to remove all the detail that is meant to be removed. This took a bit of time as the veins in the butterflies wings are so fine you have to be gentle removing them otherwise they snap. I have a plain sticker on the topper. Then another butterfly sticker (Sticker Store) I added to purple glitter paper (wonderful stuff) and layered this butterfly on top of the other. The words I cut with my craftrobo. Of course, this took me a little time to figure out that the blade I had in there was blunt and I should put the new one in. That 's why this card took so long. Wonderful end result though.
