Birthday Wishes

I will keep this one short as I have been very busy today and it's getting late.  It's past 11pm and I'm starting to yawnnnnn.  My girlfriend just reciently got the new SU butterfly dies... Beautiful Wings.  I really love this die!  Just after she showed them to me I was at Michaels and found this stamp that I fell in love with and it all came together perfect.   The stamp is from Inkadinkado (It doesn't have a name on it, sorry)

All the paper but the wicker paper are just old scraps I have.  The Wicker DP came from The Photo Stack by DCWV.  As you can see I used these Copics to color in the butterflys before I glued the dies down.  The border punches are both Fiskars.  The ribbon is and old piece I had left over from something.  I am really, really, REALLY happy how this card turned out.  I just love it and am going to give it to my Aunt for her BDay in June.  She will be the big 70 but I swear she looks like she's in her 50ies.
