Stampin' Up! Whimsical Words and I create a Birthday card

Hi Hi! I'm back with another card to show you :)
Another fairly basic card. It is a Confetti White card base, layered with another piece of Newsprint DSP (retired) which has been sponged in So Saffron. I then cut a strip of So Saffron, which I ran through the Big Shot and the Lattice Embossing Folder, sponged a little bit of More Mustard on the edges, and before gluing it down, tied a piece of Vanilla Seam Binding Ribbon around it. I then cut out a circle using the Circle Scissors, sponged the edge, and then stamped the sentiment, which is from Whimsical Words. I stamped the butterfly from Grace Taylor on a piece of watercolour paper, and coloured it using my Stampin' Write Markers, Blender Pens and Ink pad in More Mustard. I cut around the butterfly very carefully and attached him using a little piece of dimesional... 
I am entering this card into three challenges, the first is the Freshly Made Sketches sketch, see below. I am also entering this into the Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger, and finally I am entering this into the Ribbon Carousel Anything Goes challenge.
Thanks for dropping by again :)
Happy Stamping!
