Happiness is a Butterfly

Hello my Friends!!! I am so enjoying my day. I got up this morning and got to work on this card. Yeah I know, it took me alllll day!!!! LOL
I decided to combine four challenges in this card. I made an A2 size card.
 I don't know why pink is different when you get your paper/cardstock from different company stacks. All of the pinks are different shades of pink but one almost doesn't look pink. The scallop circle and the rounded corner squares I cut from the Sugar and Spice cartridge. I hid the little cutouts in the scallops so they wouldn't cut. I than ran them through my Cuttlebug using the Polka Dots embossing folder. The bigger butterfly is from Gypsy Wanderings. I used Cotton Candy Stickles on the wings and Diamond Stickles on it's body. Had to have some sparkle!! The other butterflies are a MS punch that I added tiny white pearls to the body. The front sentiment and the inside one are both MPS stamps. The 'Think Pink!' is from Simply Sweet Occasions and 'Happiness is a butterfly' is from Buggy Punnies. I put the one on the inside on a scallop oval that I punched out. The frame on the front I learned how to make from Janis over at http://pausedreamenjoy.blogspot.com/. She did a video tutorial a few weeks back.
Now the challenges I'm entering my card in are:

UH! I want Buggy Punnies SO badly. I'm stopping by for TWO reasons: One, thank you SO SO SO much for leaving such a nice comment under my video tutorial at the Cuttlebug Challenge blog! It meant so much to me. Good luck finding the A2 Combo Happy Birthday set. LOVE it. I also use the bottom of the flame Cuttlebug folder for fences, etc. to give the more classic definition that isn't on the "distressed stripes" embossing folder
TWO: Thanks SO much for playing in the challenge this week. Good luck! :)
