Floral Birthday Card

This week over at FTHS I {heart} sketches with a tWist, the twist is "Make it Sparkle." My card roughly follows the sketch but also includes some gems to add some sparkle.
Faith Skrdla (owner and designer at From The Heart Stamps) recently designed some pretty spring digi papers, so I used those for my background papers. They come in a pack of 6 pretty patterns for $2. Great patterns and colors for this time of year! The birthday sentiment is also by Faith.
I used a Memory box die for the leaves and some flowers from Hobby Lobby for my 3D flowers. I added a couple wooden butterflies from Freckled Fawn and some gems to finish off the card.
I cut the second die cut so that I could have 2 separate sprigs to work with to fill in under the yellow flowers.

I'm entering this card in the following g challenges:
