Beautiful Birthday

We are experiencing some pretty cold weather right now and I am taking this opportunity to stay inside and take part in a few card challenges.  I've been working on this card all day and I am desperately trying to get it done before the deadline for entries for TCTC4 The Color Tree.

My mother's birthday is next month so this card is for her.  I am also using it for SUOC141 Happy Birthday challenge.  I am using the SC578 Sketch Challenge.

Splitcoaststampers current technique challenge is Naked Stamping.  The line stamps I used are the butterflies since they are open enough to let the background show through.  The background was created by swiping Daffodil Delight, Tip Top Taupe, Pool Party, and Calyso Coral ink pads across whisper white card stock, stamped the butterflies using Tip Top Taupe, then punched them out and added them to my card.  I colored the flowers using the Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral, and Pool Party Stampin' Write markers.

TIEF: Decorative Dots, Lovely Lace, 
Punches:  Elegant Butterfly, Bitty Butterfly, Bow Builder
