Special Lady Birthday card!

This is a special card I made for a very special lady in my life, my Grandmother.  I am very fortunate to come from a wonderful family where I have had many great influences in my life, but none have been as great as that of my Grandmother.  She has always been the rock in my foundation, as well as that in our family.  She is very special to me and has taught me so much.  If I could be half the lady she is, that would be a wonderful accomplishment! So here's to you Nannie, Happy Birthday!!!

I stamped the flower images with the Espresso and then used the blender pen to get the color for the flowers.  For the leaves I used the ink pad to create a palette and once again I used the blender pen to color the leaves, giving the image a nice soft look!
The most difficult part of the card was trying to cut the dimensions small enough to fit on the nose of the hummingbird, but the 3D effect was so worth it!
I hope this card inspires you to create something special for someone in your life!
