Vintage Artisty Birthday

I've recently been given a new 49 and Market paper pad - I've not seen them before but the designs are lovely and the thickness is more like card than paper.  I one of the sheets to make this birthday card.

I trimmed a piece of paper so it was slightly smaller than the card blank - setting aside the trimmings I had removed.  I die cut 'Happy Birthday' from the upper corner - setting aside the pieces from the die cut.  The panel was then attached to the card.  I die cut 'Happy Birthday' twice from white card.  I inlaid one sentiment into the front of the card, together with the pink pieces I had set aside.  I layered the second white sentiment with the pink one on top and then attached them to the card.  To finish I die cut three small butterflies from the strip of card I had set aside and attached them around the sentiment.

To make this card I used:
     6" x 6" white matt card blank
     49th and Market -Vintage Artistry in Blush' paper 
     Crafts-Too 'Happy Birthday' and Tattered Lace 'Mini Butterflies' dies
     Snippets of white card

I am entering the following challenges:
     AAA Birthday Card Challenges - Patterned Paper
     Crafty Calendar Challenge - Feminine
     NBUS - Challenge 24 (my new paper pad)
     Seize the Birthday - Anything Goes

Hi Kath! Your card is beautiful. I love the choice of your patterned paper and how you die cut your sentiment directly on the patterned paper. It really makes the sentiment pops. Thank you for sharing your beautiful card at AAA Birthday. Valérie DT
