Stampin' Up! Friendly Messages and I create a Birthday card

Hi guys! I managed to make it into the craft room this morning, before having to go into work....! Here it is
This card just came together, exactly what I had in mind (which is always nice!) It is a Crumbcake card base, which I have layered some My Minds Eye patterned paper and Lucky Limeade card stock on to, I then cut out a square in Daffodil Delight, and one slightly smaller in Whisper White. I stamped the sentiment from Friendly Messages in Staz On Black and stuck it onto the Daffodil Delight Square. Next came those butterflies, which are from PTI, and have been stamped in Staz-On, cut out and coloured using my Stampin' Write Markers in Daffodil Delight and More Mustard. The top butterfly has been raised using dimensionals. I then wrapped some ribbon around the card and a little bit around the patterned paper, tied a bow, and added three little rhinestones. 
I am entering this into three challenges, the first is the CASE Study challenge, with their December Muse Amy Sheffer, from her card, I was inspired to use this colour combo (not one I'd have thought up, that's for sure) and the use of the butterflies. Next up, I have the Deconstructed Sketch, I don't think I've entered one of their challenges before, which is odd, because I have them on facebook, and keep meaning to.... And next up is another new one for me, the DYSU challenge which is to use ribbon. 
That's all from me today! Thanks for popping by, you guys make me smile :D (see!)
