Birthday Butterflies

Hello and welcome my blog friends. Reason for my MIA is, last week was kind of a busy week, it took me too long to get the text right on this card, then we went to MN for a funeral. Now I have to get busy.
This swing card is for my aunt. Card base and butterflies are from the Silhouette. I wanted to add glitter to the butterflies but I didn't want to do it with Stickles so I ran them through the Xyron and added Crystal Glitter Ritz, Warm Highlight. After several "Happy Birthday" phrases from the Silhouette that just didn't seem right to me, I punched small flowers with a Punch Bunch punch and added letters from Sizzix Extended Cuts, Small Stuff.  Background paper is a 'just the right size' piece from my stash. Below is a close up of the letters.
Thanks for stopping by, please come back soon. Have a great day.
Take Care!
