Fun card folds with a Birthday Theme -- it's gotta be good hopping with the Joy's Life Team!

If you're looking for my Pinque Peacock post, please click HERE.
It's a great hop going on with the Joy's Life team!  By now, you've seen many different card folds and creative ways to  use them.  Isn't this team something?  Since I'm the last person on the hop, I won't bore you with the whole hop order.  If you happened to stumble across my blog, and would like to participate in the whole thing, start here, at Joy's Life blog.
As soon as I heard the theme for this hop, I knew exactly what I wanted to attempt.  I just wasn't sure how it would work out.  I had seen this idea at the My Scrap Chick store. I just needed to see if I could make it work. So, I got out my Silhouette Cameo, some papers, and went to work:
 
 
This is a butterfly easel card.  I used most the layers available in the cut files.  It folds flat for mailing. 
 
And, a close up of the Joy's Life stamped image:
 
 
This image comes from the "My Hero" stamp set, found in the Joy's Life Store.  It's a great set -- one of my favorites.
 
The designer papers are from MME Stella & Rose (6x6 pad).  Bling is all Close To My Heart.
 
What's a blog hop without blog candy?  I happen to have some to give away!  It includes a 6x6 pad of paper, some Dazzle stickers, rub ons, ribbon, and  a stamp set.  To be eligible, please follow my blog and leave a comment on this post. Now, head on back to Joy's blog, and tell her what a fantastic design team she has! Tell her your favorite project along the hop!
 
I'm entering these cards in the following challenge:
