Birthday Sundaes Challenge #34

Welcome to another Birthday Sundaes challenge! I was so super excited for this one, it's an anything goes challenge with a birthday theme!  It's been a while since I made an anything goes birthday card:)

Make sure to visit the Birthday Sundaes DT for more inspiration here and also... Happy Birthday Tracey!! Tracey is even sponsoring this challenge with an AWESOME prize for the winner!!

On to my card:

I LOVE the Florals Embellished cart.  It has such beautiful images on it.  You might want to play with the colors though, because they are a bit loud as they are shown on the cart.

I'm crazy about the butterflies on this cartridge.

I also used one of my favorite carts, Elegant Edges for the card base.  Here is a side view.  It turned out so pretty!

I've been seeing people do something I've been wanting to try out for a while.  I adhered the shadow onto the card and then added pop dots to the butterfly and adhered it to the shadow.  I loved it! It gave the butterfly dimension in a totally different way.  I'm glad I finally gave that a try!
