i coloured the base card with the pink ink pad using a piece of cut n dry foam, then mat and layered with some white card which I stamped with the sentiment at the bottom. I stamped and punched three butterflies using my chosen colours of ink pads. i glued only the centre of the butterflies to add dimension as the wings lift from the card but can be posted flat. Finally i added gems to the centre for a touch of feminine sparkle. I think this makes a nice girly birthday card, but you could add a different sentiment for other occasions like thankyou or mothers day card.
