Okay, okay, it might look a "bit" busy, but this birthday card is for my SIL who has a very BIG birthday coming up next Saturday. She is a girly girl, so OTT was the way to go!
Hannah asked us to use a smile on our cards for the Ways to Use it challenge. I think little Miss has a very sweet, demure smile : ) and Dawn asked for birthday cards because her favorite daughter has a birthday today! Happy, Happy birthday to you!!!
The butterfly was given to me by Jennifer (Mother's Daughter) and it has a kind of opalessence to it. The large looking gem in the flower ribbon center is actually a vintage button from my grandmother.
Thanks so much for taking a peek!!!

Oh Kathleen this is super cute, gorgeous and pretty! I love your layout and your dp's. Your little girl is so adorable and that lovely little butterfly with her trailing pearls and then the bling just bring it all together. I don't think it's over the top at all. For anyone who is a girly girl this is just "normal"!! And it wouldn't be as cute if it was done in any other color other than PINK!! I use a lot of pink as it is my DGD's fav color :)!! I'm sure your SIL will LOVE it!!
