More Bright Butterflies

When I was making my butterfly card yesterday I used just the one colour as I didn't think I had any bright orange paper but later found a snippet of marbled paper which I used to make these butterflies.

I trimmed a piece of white card so it was slightly smaller than the card blank and used my Hougie Board to emboss two lines along the length of the card.  I used black ink to stamp 'Happy Birthday to You' below the bottom line before attaching it to the card.  I die cut seven small hearts from the marbled paper trying to get as much of the orange and yellow colours as possible on the butterfly wings.  These butterflies were then attached between the two embossed lines.

To make this card I used:
     DL white matt card blank
     Tattered Lace 'Mini Butterfly' die
     Hobby Art 'General Greetings' stamp
     Versafine Onyx Black ink
     Snippet of marbled paper from The Whimsical Marbler

I am entering the following challenges:
     Butterfly Challenge - H is for ... (I have used Heatwave and Hansa Yellow with my butterflies)
     Less is More - In a Row
