Babycakes Big Birthday Wishes Card

I love the ladies in my card-making club, but they frequently challenge me, as in the case of the Babycakes paper pack! My mission, should I choose to accept it: take a baby themed paper pack and create non-baby themed cards. I love a challenge, so with help from a sketch by Stuck Sketches, I got to work.

Although this is a layout sketch (and I will probably use it as such later this month), Frosted Designs is partnering with Stuck Sketches and wanted to see layouts or cards, so I turned it into a card. The Chocolate squares are actually leftover pieces from the window on this card (see the second card in this post), and I had saved them, hoping to use them this month. I tried to include the tags that are on the sketch, but the card was just too small. Any thoughts on the butterfly? Is it too random or should I leave it as is?
