Birthday Butterfly Card

**Don't forget to enter my giveaway!**
 
One of my friends has their birthday tomorrow and I was all out of birthday cards, so I whipped up a new one for her. I have a whole stash of Christmas cards that I make each year and never send out, plus some other special occasion cards but for some reason I seldom make Birthday cards just to have in my stash, which is silly because they are the ones I could use the most.
 
The card features a fantastic chipboard butterfly from Scrapmatts and pearls, Glitzin' Glamour and embossing folder from Couture Creations.
 
 
Anyway, I was inspired by two challenges while creating this card. Just Add Ink have two beautiful inspiration pictures for their current challenge. I couldn't go past the striking pink/black/white colour scheme.
 
 
Use Your Stuff's current challenge is to add twine to a project. I've used some I've had sitting in an unopened packet for ages to frame my white mat.
