TST #102 Butterfly Miles Away

It's Tuesday again and I am away from my regular crafting desk, but still able to take part in another great sketch by Jen over at Try Stampin on Tuesday.
So while I am away one of my co-workers is having a Birthday and I would never forget any of my girls birthdays, so I am using this sketch to celebrate with her even though I am butterfly miles away!
I have pulled another page from the My Mind's Eye Lost & Found DSP (ouch!) but I am just loving this DSP.  The banner was preprinted so I took advantage of that.  Then I cut another piece for the overlay on the card front.  Using the MS Circle Cutter I cut a 2 1/2" circle and stamped French Script over it.  Once I had assembled the card base pieces I ran them through the Cuttlebug using the Perfect Polkadots Embossing Folder.  

I cut three sets of butterflies from the Beautiful Wings Sizzlet and use two of the sets to lift the third butterfly to make it appear to be flying off the page.  Then I layered more butterflies on top of that.  The banner from the front of the card was long enough that I was able to wrap it around to the inside of the card and again accent the inside of the card with butterflies.  
I hope that you like what I have come up with.  I am certain that my co-worker with love it and be surprised that even though I am so far away on her happy day I had time to spare to make her a special card.  Happy Birthday Janet!
