I was bored last night.........

..............and Mojo was being lazy, so I decided to do some cards I had purchased a while ago from Crafts U print. This particular one you can find Here, as it was 1386th on the list for Sue Douglas designs!!! Phew that took some finding I can tell you!!

 I printed it out on some supersmooth card on my laser printer, so it has a nice sheen to it. Then I simply followed the instructions on the sheet to create the pyramage. I added a Pink Ribbon, and Bow, across the bottom of the card, before fixing it to a Base Pink Card stock.
I matted the Happy Birthday sentiment, onto a blank piece provided on the sheet, and mounted it on top of the Ribbon. I added 2 pink Gems in place of Brads and cut 4 small Butterflies from a Die by Artemio, makers of my beloved Happy Cut. I layered the butterflies in 2's and added some brilliant pink ultra fine glitter to the wings of the top layers, and mounted them with some silicon Glue for dimension. I added a bit of Fired Brick distress ink to the edge of the card for some definition, and then its was Job done. I really like how this turned out. It wasnt a creative card, but an exercise in construction as Mojo was being Lazy, and I like it, hope you do too
