Sunset Birthday

This sticker was given to me by my dear friend Terry the day we were playing with my latest purchase from Sparkle N Sprinkle - Cloud Nine Velvet Microfine Glitter.  The sticker is mounted on sticky paper that has been covered with the Cloud Nine glitter and then colored with Copics.  I then cut it out and attached it to the background with dimensionals.  The background was done with a digi stamp from Stitchy Bear Digi Stamps which I put into my Inkscape program and reversed so that the trees were both facing the center.  The trees were then masked and the background was sponged with Stampin Up inks - Peach Parfait, Apricot Appeal, Summer Sun, Pool Party, Tempting Turquoise, and Taken with Teal.  I colored the trees with Copics, added a second layer of two of the palm fronds on each tree so that it would lay over the center sticker and added some stickles.  The sand at the base of the trees is sparkled up with Sparkle N Sprinkle's Florida Beach Glitter and the sentiment is embossed with Sparkle N Sprinkle's Cerulean Star embossing powder.  A great card for a cruise lover!
