Butterflies & Flowers Pearls & Lace Birthday Card

Created this card by stamping the background with an Inkadinkado stamp that I'm not sure I used before. Added some Martha Stewart punched Butterflies punched from cardstock that had been embossed with a Peacock embossing folder and embellished the Butterflies with pearls. Used a Stampin' Up sentiment & die for sentiment tag. Added some lace.
