What a lovely card to make for your friend. All of the elements of it just say CELEBRATE!! The butterfly edge just gives the card such a dramatic look. I love the stle of the card.

This is just amazing! I've never made a card like this before. I would love to know how you constructed it. I really like the butterfly edging, it makes it look lacey and delicate. Great job!
Blessings in the new year!
