pin-spired birthday cards

I have decided that I really ought to take more inspiration from my Pinterest boards, instead of my more usual Pin-and-forget procedure :-)  I went to the Chailey workshop - run by Nicky, who can be contacted at nickyalevy@btinternet.com - and took along a batch of printed out Pinterest card ideas.
The Pin for this card is here and this is my take.

I didn't add the small flowers, because I hadn't packed the punch (thought it was in the bag already!!).  The flourish and flowers are from Stampin' Up (Everything Eleanor and Petite Petals), the tiny butterflies are from Dali Art and both the sentiments are from Stamping all Day.
Talking of Pinterest .... how do people with those boards of 4.5k Pins ever find anything???  I had trouble looking through my card inspiration board of 300 card design Pins, so have slimmed it to 250 and started a second board!!
