Stamped Happy Birthday Butterfly card!

Hi Everyone!
     Today I would like to show you how to make this beautiful butterfly card using supplies you probably already have on hand.
Here is how I made this card:
I inked the glossy side of a blank photo card with mustard seed, shabby shutters and peeled paint distress inks. Then I placed a paper doily in the center of the card and inked over it with peacock feathers  ink.
 I removed the doily and proceeded to add a stamped music sheet image, -stamp from Anna Griffin.
Next I placed some decorated wide washi tape at the top and bottom of the card.
 For the center, I used some thistle stickles and spread it outwards with my finger.
 I stamped a few butterfly's from Rubber Neck stamps and colored them in with a variety of alcohol pens. The one on the left will be the bottom butterfly for the card.
 I added detail with a fine black pen and formed the butterfly's antenna from thin craft wire.
 I inked the edges of the card, butterfly and stamped greeting with a gold leaf pen. I placed the butterfly onto the bottom image, folding the wings up, as if ready to take flight. I added some polka dot washi tape for a ribbon look, and a few Golden Berry Dew Drops from The Robins Nest for a   final touch.

Thanks for coming by, I hope you'll leave me a comment and let me know what you think of my creation. :)
