Butterfly birthday

This card is for the sketch for Flutter by Wednesday 248:

Papers are some old Papermania ones (all offcuts of pieces previously used). The butterfly is an Anna Griffin stamp inked with versamark and heat embossed with silver detail embossing powder. I then cut into a frame that came with the Papermania papers and inserted the butterfly. The banner piece down the middle is a scrap left over from a silver mirror embossed piece made with a folder with my eBosser.

This is also for:
