Fabulous Birthday

If you saw my previous post (here) the background on this card will look slightly familiar. : )  I really liked the look of the butterflies stamped over the musical score, but the orange was just a little too much for what I had in mind for my mother-in-law.  Purple and Green are her go-to colors and she really likes butterflies, so this is much more her style.  I spritzed some glimmer mist over the background and it gives it such a beautiful shimmer.
