Birthday Bash Challenge

I'm submitting this card to CAS-ual Fridays' Birthday Bash Challenge.  CAS means Clean and Simple, so I wanted something without much embellishment.  I started out by die cutting a butterfly (Papertrey Ink) from dark purple paper (I've used the negative of that sheet in another card I'll post later this week).  I then used CAS-ual Fridays' Countdown set for the sentiment and image.  The image is designed to be stamped straight, but I curved it on my stamping block to get this effect.  The backing paper is a lighter purple, and the ink, Grape by Memento.  I attached the butterfly using pop dots.
