Butterfly Birthday Card

Hello everyone,

Just a quick post of a card I made for my dear friend's birthday:

I created a background by heat embossing faded text stamp with white embossing powder. Then I applied Dusty Concord DI, heavily to the edges and lightly to the centers of the papers.

I used Tim Holtz butterfly stamp and die to cut out 3 butterflies and layer them for extra dimension...

I kept the card simple and only added a little bit of Baby's Breath and white ribbon...wanted to keep a focus on the text background and butterfly.

I would like to enter this card into following challenges:
