Birthday Card

Happy 2015!!
I was inspired by Cindy Hall's card at Freshly Made and used the colors from Color Throwdown challenge.  I remembered a stamp set that I had not used and thought it could be good to case a similar card.  I like the results but wonder if the polka dots in red would have been a better color choice. The butterflies were stamped on vellum and a plain one cut for the base to give it more of a 3D look.   Enjoy!
