Birthday card

Hi all
I have been asked by a friend to make his wife a pretty  card for her birthday ...but not with a girly image so i used my new elegant labels nesties  and a radiant rectangle nestie to created this pretty card ,the papers i have used are from the Floral Pavillion first edition pad by trimcraft and the whole pad is just stunning ,pretty pinks and florals..i love it.The flower is handmade using a sizzix die created for SU.the middle is made using card candy,the fab ornate butterfly is part of a cheery lynn die set,the leaves are also from a cheery lynn.die.
The pretty ribbon and gems are from meiflower crafts and the sentiment was printed from the computer using the curlz mt font.
