Marigolds and Morpho Butterfly Birthday

My card today is a Birthday card using another image from the Fed She Said newest Release called Marigolds and Morpho

This is a pre-colored image. There are so many different options with this set and they are so gorgeous that I want to make cards with all of them. 

The design inspiration started with a sketch from The Deconstructed Sketch Challenge. I then used a Martha Stewart punch for my top and bottom edges. 

 The image was printed twice and the Butterfly was cut out of the second one and layered for extra dimension. Blue crystals adorn the heard and body of the butterfly. 

I'm finally getting around to using some retired papers from Close to my Heart. Colors are Star Spangled Blue, Sunkiss Yellow and Creme Brulee, along with Star Spangled Blue Grosgrain Ribbon. 

 The Happy Birthday is from a NEW Birthday Set called "Joyful Birthday". The Hand Stitching was done with matching Embroidery Floss.
