Butterfly Circle Birthday Card

This is card #2 for my mother-in-law – her birthday is next week.

Do I have a small butterfly stamp that I can use with the Gina K. Designs wreath builder?? (YES)

Gorgeous Grape, inks – Hero Arts Fiesta Yellow, Taylored Expressions Jelly Donut, Lime Zest, Lollipop, VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Lawn Fawn (stitched rectangle), Spellbinders (circles), embossing folder – Provo Craft, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.
