A blue flying happy birthday

Edit: This card won Top 3 on Stampin Vacation!
This blue card is for a friend who LOVES blue (also my youngest loves blue...), and
I did paper piecing for the bird image , which is one of the NEW RELEASE that Trish put on Simple Doodles (this lovebird is simply adorable!).
Although the card is all blue, I find it warm wishing. I feel that the image, along with the flower and the butterflies , are so cheerful and loving.
and it goes with the following challenges:
sketch + color (all blue) + element (birthday) - design dollies trifecta
the 3-B's (Blue, Blossom & emBoss) - day 334 on 365 cards (the pale blue cs was cold embossed with flowers pattern and then inked with indigo ink)
flowery (use at least 5 flowers) - humble pie (the embossing pattern, the flower was made of 5 layers, the rhinestone)
blooming gorgeous - #97 cute card thursday
flower & butterfly - #34 tree house thurdsay
open but use a butterfly - #94 flutter be wednesday and also for #11 quixotic
musical challenge - our creative corner (the lovebird, some of the pp for the layered flower are note pp)
monochromatic - #13 tuseday throwdown
pick a sketch, any sketch - aifactory
pick 3 - stamping vacation (the card is for a woman, but I used a "masculine" color blue, tearing the edges of the image, the flower shape is all around - the embossing, the layering for the flower, the rhinestone, and there are 3 butterflies))
distressing - #46 ooh-la-la
inspiration - #73 etsyinspired (I was inspired by the color of these lovely newborn shoes)
color - act #14 curtain call
ink it up! - #131 tanda teaser (the embossing, the edges of the image, the sentiment)
make it personal - #65 one stop craft
recipe - use a non human image (the bird), add some texture (the embossing, the metal butterfly, the stickles over the paper butterfly and the flower), try something new (the image is a new release from simple doodles) - #9 cooking it up with Katie
new - (the image) - alphbet; #23 doodle palace
the older the better - #3 raise the bar (I have the weave pp for a long long time)
warm wishes - pile it on
embossing - frosted designs
Thank you so much for stopping by and looking at my creation.
Have a lovely day!
