Birthday card using ruffle technique

Using a tutorial from Operation Write Home on the dimensional ruffle technique, (Ruffle Card), I made a birthday card for my mother-in-law.  It's a great technique to use up my scraps, which I have waaay too many of!  Here's the card:

I don't get to make too many feminine cards, so I just had to go with a pink sparkly butterfly that I cut out using SCAL.

Lots and lots of ruffles, with dimensional stickers to pop them up a bit:

I'm entering this card in these two challenges:
