Floral Slider Birthday card

Hello everyone!  I wanted to make a slider card so I searched for instructions on youtube and I found Darlene Devries' video on how to make one.  I was inspired by Darlene Devries' post of double slider card.  I used the same measurements and followed her instructions on making a slider.
I love Altenew's Beautiful Day stamp set and couldn't wait to use it on this card.  With the warm weather, I feel like spring is around the corner but I got a feeling it is just the beginning of winter of yet to come.

I cut out all the cardstock to the sizes that Darlene specified.  I stamped the flowers from Altenew Beautiful Day, the hummingbird and butterflies from WPlus9 Flora and Fauna 2 set and color everything that can be colored with Copic markers.
 I used Distress Ink (Blue China) and blending tool to add color to the cardstock before stamping the sentiment from Simon Says Stamp Birthday Bits sets.

For the main sentiment, I die cut the word, "birthday", from Mama Elephant and layered the die cuts 4 times.  I stamped the "happy" sentiment from Papertrey Ink Stylish Sentiments: Birthday set.

I love how it came out!  Not bad for my first time. ;-)

Thanks for stopping by.  Happy crafting!
