Birthdays and Butterflies

My card this week is actually the fourth I made this weekend but it is the only one I can share as the others are for a new challenge blog which is coming very soon. You can find out about it over here. I coloured the image a few weeks age when I was making Rachael's birthday card but then I decided Jenni's image would be more suitable. I bought a new set of papers by V&A  and was so pleased with the results I got on the other cards that I couldn't resist making one more. Ah well, the housework will still be there next weekend!
I was very cross with myself as I had just finished putting it all together when I realised I had got a black mark on the corner of the image... hence the butterfly!
I am entering it in the following:

Pollycraft Monday Challenge -pastel colours
The Crafty Pad -Something new
2 Sisters Challenge -flowers
Creative Inspirations -celebrate
Catch the Bug -birthday
Prairie Fairy Friday -happy birthday
