Purple-y Birthday Wishes

I'm going to apologize for the photo of this card.  It should be more crisp.  I snapped it quickly one Saturday morning last month before whisking it off for a lunch meeting to wish Brandy a very happy birthday.  I'd even forgot I had these photos until now!  

Those purple flowers are my first attempt at the Heartfelt Creations poppies dies.  I used a piece of light purple mulberry paper.  They were difficult to shape because the paper is so flimsy. However, I think they look rather realistic and they work so well with that patterned paper!  The butterflies are cut from coordinating patterned papers using my Prickly Pear Mini Butterflies dies.  A few metal keys (Brandy enjoys keys) and some heavy fibrous yarn for a bow and this card practically made itself.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp's Monday challenge: Show Us Your Metal
