Happy Birthday my dear friend Valerie!

 I made this card for my friend Valerie's birthday.  It would mean so much to me if you would stop by her blog and wish her a Happy Birthday.  She is extremely talented, has a beautiful blog and she is one of the nicest people you will ever meet here in Blogland.
The beautiful papers and image are Gecko Galz, I hand cut the lace flower and you can't see it, but I added some translucent Stickles to the lace.  The butterfly is velvet with little beads and pearls.  The frames are die cuts from Fancy Borders My Graphico Mujka Chic.  I also embossed the frames.
I am entering this in the Gecko Galz Blog Challenge , there are wonderful prizes up for grabs in it!
Thanks for looking.  ~Diane
