Busy Birthday Bees

A birthday card today, using a Wild Rose Studios stamp that I really love and that I never tire of inking up, although, to be fair, I haven't used it for a while.  It's been coloured with Promarkers, highlighted with Star Dust Stickles, then I gave the icing on the cake a coat of Glossy Accents and sprinkled on some purple micro beads.  The sentiment was stamped with a Personal Impressions stamp.
 The patterned papers are Papermania Capsule Collection in Eau de Nile and French Lavender, I added in some plain pearl cardstock in moss green, lilac and turquoise to compliment these.
To embellish, I made some flowers with a Heartfelt Creations stamp and die set and Nellie Snellen punches.  I also added a little bird house made with a Marianne die, some foliage made with a Woodware punch, some crochet lace, lilac satin ribbon, and I finished with some pearls in the corners.
