Butterfly Birthday

I love butterflies and I recently ordered a cut-work butterfly die from Marianne Designs. I thought it would be perfect for my cut-work cards, where I die cut a shape in the front of the card then put a butterfly across the opening. I love this die cut, so this morning I made a card using one.

I started with a 5" x 7" decorative card. I die cut an oval shape on the right side and attached the die cut butterfly over the opening. I cut a strip of pink and stamped Happy Birthday (an Impression Obsession stamp) on the strip. I backed the pink strip with a burgundy strip and added three gold brads. I then attached it to the card.
