Make A Wish on Your Birthday

Wanted to create a special birthday card for one of my wonderful Instagram friend who is celebrating her birthday and let her know I'm sending big hugs to her and hope her day is filled with happiness and joy. 

Also, linking this card over at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge with "Make it Sparkle" along with joining over at Seize The Birthday with their topper of "Red and White

Here is my card:
I just love adding some sparkles on birthday cards and what better way but to make a shaker card using this fun Stitched Duo 3 die from Pretty Pink Posh. Also, added a combination of clear sequin with a touch of color and seed beads. 

Here is the combination I used: Spring Flower Mix, 4mm Pink Peonies, 4mm Sparkling clear, and Sparkling clear Seed Beads

Really enjoying this exclusive Scallop Frame Die which I die cut using some silver glitter paper before moving onto coloring these critters with my copics. Aren't they adorable? I just love this cute little bear and penguin from the Winter Friends stamp set, so than I pulled out Holiday Pals stamp set for the tiny bow and prensents to convert this into a happy birthday cards. 

Don't want to forget my favorite, the Twine and Bow die which I find myself using time and time again as it doesn't add bulk to the card when mailing out when you want to add a bow. If your wondering were these little sentiments come from, it's from the Mini Messages set from Mama Elephant. It's awesome. 

As you can see, these little critters are not just for the holidays, but can be used for birthdays as well. As always, if you haven't checked out the challenge, please stop over to check out all the inspiration
