Birthday wishes

My first card of 2019 is for 3 challenges: Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge - Party Time; Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge - Something New; and Mod Squad challenge - Patterned Paper Triple Time.

I received the Gina K. Designs Stampers Favorites stamp set for Christmas, so I thought that would be good for the Something New challenge. I made a birthday card for a birthday party and used 3 different patterned papers.

I stamped the hummingbird and sentiment with Gina K. Designs Amalgam ink onto Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth Premium White Cardstock and coloured the hummingbird with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers: TB6, BT8, GT2, VB1. I used a Spellbinders Nestabilities Big Scalloped Ovals Small die to cut it out and then fussy cut a black mat.

I cut 3 pieces from the Gina K. Designs Delicate Essentials patterned paper pack and arranged them on a piece of black cardstock that I had attached to a white card base. I adhered the focal image with some foam squares and added a couple of rhinestones to the two corners.
