Pink Birthday

I'm not a big lover of the color pink, but I have several people in my life who are and would be delighted to get a pink card.  This is my first attempt at a triple layer card and it is quite fun.  The layers were done with Stampin Up's Hello Doily in Crumb Cake and a Martha Stewart Butterfly set in Sparkle N Sprinkle's Petal Pink embossing powder.  They were then spritzed with Pink Taffy Glimmer Mist.  The base cardstock is Crumb Cake and Pink Pirouette.  The main Butterfly was embossed on a pink vellum with Petal Pink and the ribbon is Really Reasonable Ribbon.  The flowers and bling are just from my stash. It looks very Spring-like, don't you think?

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:

Fab N Funky - Pink, Green, Brown
Stamp N Doodle - Anything Goes
In the Pink - Spring/Easter
Nutcrafters - Spring is here
LEJ - Add a flower
Link up For Pink - Chall #11
