Kraft and Black Birthday Wishes card

I was hoping I'd be able to craft more this past weekend since we had a semi decent snow storm blow through. Not so much. We spent a lot of time shoveling, not only our stuff, but two neighbors as well. It's all good. The sun was shining again on Sunday and the snow helps our drought conditions.

I did manage to finish up a card I started at Becky's a week ago. 
I was inspired by a card seen on Pinterest, here.

The card is pretty straight forward. I used a hexagon stamp from CTMH's Honeycomb set on the butterfly, but the mat size on the sentiment piece was too large to use it there as well. So, I used a Hero Arts stamp called Antique Brocade for that and I think it works pretty well. The birthday wishes sentiment is from Papertrey Ink set, Mixed Messages. The ribbon is a satin from Michaels. 

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Hope your week is off to a great start.
