Butterflies Yellow and years Happy Birthday Kathy

Good Morning all 

Here is my card today for the Butterfly Challenge of Yellow Years and Butterflies

I made this card with my daughter Kathy in mind as it was her birthday on 
28th June and she is 39 years. Where does the time go ??? 

So here is her card - I hope she liked it.... ;) 

I first used the Rubbernecker stamps to make the flowers using yellow and orange with black 
for the stems and edges.... 

added a yellow edge to the topper using watercolour paints. 

Mounted onto yellow glitter card onto an embossed card blank. 

The card blank I gave a little hint of yellow to bring it all together. 

Then added the embellishments of butterflies, yes yellow ones, and an old 
favorite peel offs for the sentiments. 

Die cut out the numbers in yellow scrap bit of card and added a few stars too. 

I hope you like it and gives you some inspiration for the next challenge 

Good luck with the challenge and I look forward to 
seeing your work.
