Tropical birthday wishes

Hiya crafty friends and welcome.
Today I figured it's about time I blogged about a card I made a few weeks ago. A card that
got my crafty mojo working again.
And I'm only blogging about it now. Sigh.
Here it is:

 and the inside:

Seriously, I don't know why it took me this long to share this card. Because it's 
very mixed media, and I love how it turned out.
The background was made using Magenta Nuance dye powders. I stenciled over it with 
embossing paste using that awesome flower stencil.
I die cut, colored and added Stickles and Wink of Stella to the pineapple and the
hibiscus flower. Love the subtle shimmer to the images!

Oooh! Shimmery!

The Happy Birthday was embossed in gold using the Digits set. 

Well, that's it for now. Guess I should get my behind in gear and do something
about dinner. LOL! Thanks for visiting!
