Hello Crafty Friends,

I love to send birthday cards.  I send birthday cards to my student each year and my mom sends birthday cards to each of our friends for their birthday's.   I love to send them, but I also like to make them.  I think cards are a special piece of mail that not many people send anymore.

Today, I want to share a birthday card I created using the Mystic Romance collection.

To create the humming bird, I use the small daubers and ink to create the shading on the bird.  When I had the card all together, I then went back and painted the bird with Sparkle silk to give it that sparkly look that hummingbirds have when you see them in the sunshine.

Supplies Used:
Stamp: Sweet Petunias, Embroidered Greetings
Paper: Grape Fusion Cardstock, Denim Days Cardstock, Pool Play Cardstock, Mystic Romance Paper Pack
Ink: Grape Fusion, Kiwi Slice, Rich Coral
Dies: Sweet Petunias
Silk: Sparkle
Accessories: Journey Natural Twine
Tools: Small Daubers
