Birthday Cake, candles-oh my

Was hoping to get this on earlier today, but had to shut down computer because we were having lots of thunder and lightening. Didn't get hardly any rain, though.
So, this card is for the Color throw down challenge 207 here. I will also enter it in these cchallenges:  Crafty Cardmakers challenge #74  -winged things; Flutterby Wednesday 203-decorate the inside of your card; the Pink Elephant #164-use patterned paper.

The image I used is Stampavie-Happy Day. I stamped it with Memento Rich cocoa on Neenah Solar White CS and colored it with Copic Markers. I added some Pebbles chalk to her cheeks, and for the glow around the candles. I cut her out with Spellbinders Label 17, the traced around the same die on a scrap of orange cardstock and fussy cut it for the mat. I added some Stardust Stickles for some 'Glitz'.
The DPs are from DCWV Nana' Nursery-Baby Girl, perfect colors for this challenge. All the solid mats are cut from scraps from my scrap basket. I cut the butterflies out with Cheery Lynn Exotic Mini Butterflies, and the flower is cut with Spellbinders Carnation Creations dies. I added some Cinnamon Stickles to the body of teh butterfly on teh front and soem Stardust stickles to the wings, adn a bit around the top layer on the flower.   The Happy birthday sentiment is part of a gold HB-day border sticker.
And here is the inside. The verse is computer generated. The verse and mat (DWCV) were cut with Spellbinders Labels 17, and the butterfly with Cheery Lynn exotic mini butterfly die.
