Seize the Birthday - use two pattern papers

Hello friends.  It is time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday and this week we have the "Toppings" option of using two pattern papers.  Remember the only requirement is that it be for a birthday.  Also, be sure to check out the rules as you can only link to 5 challenges, including ours.
For my card I used a scrap of older Chatterbox pattern paper and the sketch from Sunday Stamps.

 The lt. blue pattern is the reverse side of the diamond pattern.  I matted them with black CS which I think makes them pop.  The sentiment is an older stamp I got at JoAnn's.  The butterfly is from my new My Favorite Things Beautiful Butterflies and the matching Beautiful Butterflies die.  The lt. blue is cut with MFT Pierced Fishtail Flags stax and the mat with MFT Fishtail Flags Layers.  The circles are cut with MFT Pierced Circles and MFT Circle Stax 2.  The sentiment panel is mounted with foam tape and the butterfly image is just glued down in the center.  I added some bling by Recollections.

Now check out all the fabulous cards by the designers over at Seize the Birthday.  I hope you will be inspired to play along.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you have a wonderful day.

Happy Stamping,
