Water Lily Birthday Card for a Challenge

I have been wanting to try some challenges from other sites for quite awhile, but usually have been too busy to even think about it.  So here is my first attempt.  This is a card that uses glitter and a beautiful cardstock to get lots of Bling! 

Water Lily Birthday Card

All stamps, glitters and embossing powders by Sparkle and Sprinkle.  Start by stamping the Water Lily 1236-234M and emboss using Silver Detail Embossing Powder EP257, then color with copic markers.  Use versamarker on the flowers then apply Sparkle Embossing Powder EP107.  Stamp Happy Birthday 1237-234A in blue ink (cover the "to you" with tape).  Next cut out the image using Spellbinders Labels Four Die S4-190 (largest), leave the die on the paper and shade with pink ink.  Add Silver Leaf Tinsel Glitter GT3004 with glue to the center of the one flower.  Use the same die and trace around the outside and cut out of turquoise paper.  Die cut the Sissix Corner Flower #2 die from Sticker paper. Remove backing and sprinkle Bubblegum Glitter G1088 over. Attach to corner as in picture
Die cut the bottom butterfly from white cardstock and the top butterfly from vellum. Leave the paper in the die and color the spots with pink Copic marker on the white paper, and use Gelly Roll Pink Star pen of the vellum. Use a Sakura glue pen on the spots on the white paper, then sprinkle with Sparkling Snow
glitter G1003. On the vellum, brush the entire butterfly with brushable glue, sprinkle on Sparkling Snow glitter. **the paper will curl—after dry bend it back into shape. When dry, attach vellum butterfly layer onto white layer using 1/8” Tear-ific Tape.
The pretty blue background was made using Cadillac Embossed Cover that you can buy here.  It is beautiful all by itself in white, but I simply added some blue dye inks with daubers until I got the color I wanted.  Simple and shiny.

I am entering this into the following challenge:
