Happy Birthday in beautiful purple

Stampin Sisters in Christ had a great devotion about beauty so I recommend you click over and read that especially if you have daughters.  I like how their theme came from that (as they always do - so clever!) and this week it's anything beautiful!  So I used my butterflies, flowers, jewels and glitter.  Another beautiful thing on this card is the yellow top note die cut made with my beautiful Big Shot!  I love that tool and I love that shape!

Do You Stack Up wants us to use the color purple this week!  Easy for me since it's my favorite color.  

I'm entering this card over at Sentimental Sundays too because they have an "anything goes" theme.  As usually, they have free sentiments you can use.  

I started this card by looking at my embellishments and knew I wanted to use the daisy.  The yellow and purple came from that.  I just found cardstock that matched the best.  
From there I went thru my birthday folder with die cuts and stickers and found this awesome Happy Birthday die cut.  I added the glitter to beautify it!  
The butterflies are from Annabelle Stamps which I won on a challenge a little while ago (before this blog).  They are clear stamps and stamp really clean and crisp!  I am really happy with them.  I chose SU! Rich Razzleberry ink because if you look carefully in the confetti behind the sentiment, there is dark tones there.  (Click on image to enlarge.)  
I added glitter glue to the butterflies and it smudged the ink a little so I colored it in with colored pencils and now you can't tell. 
Lastly, I added 3 jewels on the corner and that's about it!
A birthday card for a beautiful friend - perfect theme for her!!

Thanks for swinging by!
