Birthday card and Exciting giveaway

Happy Birthday to me!!! Well I just had to say it. I am now officially 25 years old and about time too. Time sure does fly. 
So I got to making some cards in the last couple of days and on e just so happens to be a Birthday card that I made for my mother. She absolutely loved it and so did I. The turn-out was wonderful. I especially love the color combo and design. The color combination idea comes from Nancy's card over at CropStop Challenge Blog. They are celebrating National Scrapbook Day with a challenge and we are supposed to lift of the the DT's cards. I chose Nancy's card because of the butterflies and colors. I've seen some 3D butterflies on some creations before so I decided that I definitely have to try it out and see how it looks. I love it. The paper comes from "Bearly Mine Designs". Donna has some freebies ever once in a while and I absolutely love her work and papers. I used the photo shot to change the color of the paper to match my image and what a perfect match it is. Anyways, here is my card... and thanks everyone for all your lovely comments. I love hearing what you think of my cards.
