1st birthday butterflies

Here is a card I made for a friend of mine whose niece is turning 1 this weekend. She is the most precious little girl and I wanted to make the card as girly and pretty as she is - hope she likes it :)

I used papers from my most fav' girly paper pad (at the moment !) MME's Miss Caroline howdy doody. I adore the colours and patterns in it and have almost used the entire pad - me thinks I am going to have to invest in another !

The cute image is a digi by pink cat studio and she is coloured with my pro-markers and highlighted with glitter. I used some pink twill and added a pearl heart slider I also added pearls to the embossed butterflies (sizzix embosslit from SU). The 1st die cuts are from an old Brenda Pinnick kit and I just inked them and added glitter and a little bow.

This little "Happy Birthday" stamp is one of my fav's from HOTP and I just had to add some more glitter to the sentiment banner - and yes I was covered with glitter when I'd done - it's how I am happiest :)

Here's another pic
