Birthday Bling

UPDATE:  My card won an "HONORABLE MENTION CUP OF TEA"  for The Shabby Tea Room's Challenge #24.

Several months ago, I bought some Wausau Royal Metallic Chalice Silver paper at Office Max, thinking that I could use it when I made Christmas cards.  However, The Shabby Tea Room's Challenge #24, "A Little Bit of Metal," was a perfect use for this paper.
I used SU's Basic Black as my base, and then I added the Chalice Silver.  I used two rub-ons to frame my sentiment, which I embossed using some Ranger silver metallic embossing powder. After embossing and punching out my sentiment, I decided to cut up and then piece together one of my silver foil Wilton cake doilies as a backing for the sentiment.
On the left side of the card, I added some bling as well as several silver metallic flowers (that I took apart and reassembled) and a butterfly that I also embossed.
I am also entering this in Flutterby Wednesday #119 --anything goes as long as there's a butterfly, fairy, or angel on the card.

Stamp:  SU's Well Scripted; Paper:  SU's Basic Black, Wausau Royal Metallic Chalice Silver; Punches:  Martha Stewart butterfly, Marvy Uchida scallop oval; Embellishments:  Wilton silver foil doily, Reflections flowers, Me and My Big Ideas rhinestone bling, Plaid rub-ons; and Ranger Silver metallic embossing powder.
