Hello Friend - Sending you Hugs

As you know, March is National Craft Month and everyone loves to celebrate. So, I created this card to send to someone who needs some hugs along with playing with some of my favorites. Also, entering this card over at Right at Home celebration of National Craft Month and over at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge of "cute and cuddly".
Here is my card:
I'm still playing with this cute Birdie Friends set from Pretty Pink Posh as it's one of my favorites with these little chicks and sentiments, so I decided to create another shaker card using the Storybook 2 die as I love these 3 mini little squares and rectangle to build on any scene. 

To create the center frame, I used the Stitched Rectangles from Simon Says Stamp and placed it around the Storybook 2  die and ran them together thru the die cutting machine. Next, I die cut a bigger frame and placed around the smaller frame as it was a perfect fit. 

For the background, I did play with several distress inks where I spritzed on some water along with some Perfect Pearls for sparkles in the background itself. Love the way it all mixed together.

Once again, I colored the images using Zig Clean Color Brush and stamped the umbrella from the Rainy Day set from Pretty Pink Posh using Doll Pink ink from Simon Says Stamp. Than, added some little envelopes from the Birdie Notes set. Just love how how of these stamp sets work with one another.

Last, but not least, I added in some favorite sparkles, 4mm and 6mm Sparkling clear sequinsAs always, if you haven't checked out the challenge, please stop over to check out the amazing inspiration over there.
