Birthday Wishes and Sending Hugs!

I'm back again today as I'm playing catch up on birthday cards as another one of my sweet friends over at Instagram celebrated her birthday a few days ago. This one is for Patricia @ Scrapflower (IG) and wanted to wish her a belated birthday and wish her many more to come. Also joining the Wednesday challenge over at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge with the theme Stamp It  

Here is my card: 
As you know, I love creating shaker cards, so this time, I decided to combine some more elements and use this adorable Stitched Duo 1 die from Pretty Pink Posh as I love the large tag with it's detailed stitiching. Plus, it has these little stitched squares to add little sayings and/or sequins.

From there, I focused on the shaker element and added some sentiments from the Birdie Friends set as I find the words perfect for any occassion. Here, I took this pharse out and put the words "hugs" above and "to you" at the bottom.

Next, I added in these beautiful iridescent 4mm Lavender Moon sequins which I love the way they sparkle and shine. For the center focal point, I wanted to use this cheerful cute little bird from the Birdie Notes set and die cut using the Birdie Notes Coordinating die.  

The coordinating dies are always so helpful since it makes it easy to cut the images in a matter of seconds.....don't you think?

From there, I decided to water color this image using Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers.

Finished off this card by adding some flowers using the Altenew Vintage Roses set and added this cute big bow from the Twine and Bow set from Pretty Pink Posh as it always adds that extra touch without adding bulk. I always seem to reach for this when thinking of of my favorites!
Which one is your favorite?
