Happy Birthday with Pattern Pow

Hello!  I love to play with pattern papers almost as much as I like to color.  This card was made with 4 patterns from Fancy Pants Wonderful Days pad.  I stamped GKD's Butterfly from Hope is Faith set  on a pattern square with Memento Tuxedo Black  and colored with a Memento Marker Dandelion.  I then sponged around the butterfly with Distress Ink Broken China.  Following the sketch from Sketch Saturday,  I arranged sections of the papers on a base card and attached the image.  The GKD Sentiment from Stippled Nature was stamped with Memento Nautical Blue.

Backgrounds Challenge-You have to use  at least 3 different patterned papers and / or
you can use ink refills as Kendra did in her tutorial. I used some sponging as I do not any ink refills with me.
