Hey Ya'll,
Bobby here, from Cricut Couple!  This card was kind of a trial for me as I hadn't played with Ribbons and Rosettes yet.  Although, it's a little thicker than I expected, I thought it turned out pretty well and thought it deserved finishing the way it was.  Hee! Hee!
 I used my favorite paper for this card from DCWV.  The Black Currant Stack is just beautiful!  I also used Paper Trimmings for the butterfly and the butterfly doily.  I used CTMH Art Philosophy for the Happy Birthday stamp and the label shape on the bottom.  I cut both layers of the doily with papers from the stack.  I cut the butterfly base layer with translucent paper by Recollections (love the way this stuff cuts... much better than most vellum.) and then cut the detailed layer from purple stock from this paper stack.  For the center of the butterfly, I used a black marker.  When it was put together, I covered the detail layer with stickles and the center with glossy accents.
 I used the Ribbons and Rosettes cartridge for the rosette.  I cut the shape to the size that it called for in the book.  I cut 6 of them.  The hash marks that the machine makes when cutting made it so much easier to fold.  The next time, I will cut this smaller so that it doesn't stand quite so tall on the card.  It's gonna take a 1" thick box for this one.  Hee! Hee!  I put together the 6 pieces with scrappy glue after it was folded and then clipped it with a large binder clip to dry.  Then glued them into a loop and made the rosette.  For the bottom label, I cut them at a height of 2.50.  I used 3D adhesive to make the border stand out more.
I used a black card base.  I also cut a smaller butterfly and added it to the inside.  The card and all mats are inked with black ink.  Overall, I was very pleased with the way it turned out.  I hope you all like it.  Thanks so much for visiting today!  We would love to know what you think of it too!  We would also love for you to visit us over at Cricut Couple and see all of the wonderful projects that amazing design team have been working on!
