Butterflies everywhere!

Two new followers to welcome today, Debbs of DJ Crafter and Kevin of McCrafty's Cards.  Thank you for following me,  I hope you visit again soon.

Onto today's birthday card, which I hope has reached its recipent.  

   I decided to make a box card with a circular aperture.  To make the box, I started with two pieces of apricot card, 7" x 5".   I scored each end of both pieces of cards at 1/2" and 1".  The circle of butterflies is the largest die from Spellbinders 'Butterflies Circles', with a die cut circle from the middle to create the aperture. The butterfly corners on the background are punched with a Dovecraft corner punch.  The butterfly in the centre is a Spellbinders die which cuts and embosses two butterflies, which can be layered.  Unfortunately this die was discontinued some time ago.  I've raised up the butterfly on foam pads.  The sentiments down the sides are computer generated.

This photo shows how the card is assembled.  It fold flat for posting.

I would like to enter my card for the following challenges:
