Birthday for a Friend


I recently made and gave this card to a long-time friend of mine so it's OK to post it now. I started with some GinaK pink cardstock, die-cutting a Gina Marie Designs (GMD) rose. I also cut one from white, swapping the negatives and coating the white with WOS glitter pen. The leaves are from a Hero Arts stamp set that were heat-embossed with white ep on dark green cardstock and then fussy cut. I curled them around a pencil and popped them up with dimensionals. The hummingbird was cut with a Cheery Lynn die and the red foiled material is from a mailing envelope an order came in. I removed the bubble wrap from the back and used the pretty red foil to die cut many items for cards. The pastel pink textured background was done with a SU! Petal Burst ef, and the sentiment was heat-embossed with white on black using SU! and MFP sentiment stamps. Those sentiments were cut with MFT label dies in 2 different sizes. 
I added a drop of black stickles to the bird's eye for a little more sparkle.

I'm sharing this with the following challenges:

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a wonderful Wednesday!
