90th Birthday card

Oh yawn, I'm pooped tonight ... my eyes are sooooo tired, doesn't help that my daytime lamp has stopped working (hopefully it just needs a new bulb) and I think I need to go get my eyes tested too!
I was asked to make this card weeks ago, but of course I've left it till the last minute as per usual.  I had a couple of empty spaces in the top and bottom right corners and had embellies / flowers / corner dies / bling on and off like a yoyo but nothing looked right, so I've just gone with these little butterflies.  Their wings are slightly popped up in real life so I don't think they look as wishy washy as they do here.  I still think it needs 'something' but I haven't a clue what.  It will have to do!
Favourite flower stamp from Whipper Snapper - coloured with watercolour pencils.  Silver peel off letters from stash.

  14. Ooh, it's very pretty and doesn't need another thing. I thought for a second you said the butterfly eyes were popped up and then realized it was the wings. I was wondering how that worked. Ha Maybe I need my eyes checked, too. Anyway, your card is fabulous.
