Spring birthday

I have been trying to find a way to use a new find - the other day I ran across a roll of felt ribbon at Dollar Tree.  It has a solid and a cut out butterfly, but I only used the cut out one.  It came in a few different colors, but I chose the mint green - than have had a hard time figuring out a way to incorporate this into a card!  It certainly adds dimension, and I know I can also cut away the edging for a different look.  The CS is from a Recollection pack, and the DP a piece from a DCWV pad I have had for several years!  I used a Darice embossing folder for the butterfly bg.
