Yellow, Purple & Silver

Hi everyone, for the first time I am entering a card in the Circle Blog (exclusive to Circle members)weekly challenge.
 This week the challenge is to follow this sketch.....................
It looked like it could be a lot of fun and so very versatile. To qualify the project to enter had to be a newly created project, have glitter or bling and at least two different Cricut cuts..  For the glitter/bling part I pulled out my DCWV Lemon Flower stack.  I love the papers n this stack.  Well my card evolved a bit as it went on.  Here is what it first looked liked.
Although pretty, I felt like the circles were a bit to plain.  So I brought in some color!  Here is what I came up with.

Much better don't you think.  Although it looks like the background is matted on the darker color it is not.  The darker color is a very thin frame I cut using the George cartridge by placing one rectangle inside another.  Wanted to make sure I cut my qualifying cuts in, the circles were also cut using George.  I also used my Gypsy to set up the plaid rectangle cut so it would be the correct size I wanted.  The corner I cut with my trimmer just from a scrap of paper that I had.
The butterflies were cut from the Martha Stewart Elegant Cake Art cartridge.  They were cut from plain white cardstock that I sprayed with Deep Plum Glimmer Mist spray, then added some silver bling down the center.
The "happy birthday" was a stamp that I heat embossed with silver embossing powder.
I did the inside very very simple for now and will add more when I go to use this card.
Told you t was plain  LOL.  Well thanks so much for stopping by, please leave me a comment so that I know you were here.

Really great card. Thanks for showing the first, then the final card. It gives me a feel of when NOT to consider a project finished. The butterflies certainly were a perfect final touch.
