Happy Birthday case

Stamps by ODB:  image is Faith, and sentiment is Happy Birthday set.  This challenge is the last for two of the designer team members at ODB, and I decided to use their cards as inspiration.  Cheryl fussy cut this image, so I decided to try the same.  Her results are infinitely better, but I did try!  I also paper pieced three of the butterflies - though because of the pattern on the stamp the DP did not show up a lot. Those 3 butterflies (lighter colored) have fluttering wings.  I used sparkly inks (Memento and Twinkling H20 ) plus glitter on the butterflies to give some sparkle.  The heart charm is a prize from Iva Nova Chest - brand new.
