Stampin' Up! Elements of Style and I create a Birthday Card

Hi Guys! Today I had a wonderful crafty day, with the girls from my stamp club, we all got inky and made up some cute frames, and a matching card.... I forgot to take a photo of my frame before I gave it to my sister, and I will save the card to show later.... I have a different card to show you today :)
I used a Basic Grey card base, which I layered with Wisteria Wonder and a piece of Very Vanilla. The Vanilla card has been masked with some post it notes, and stamped with the floral image from Elements of Style and coloured using the Wisteria Wonder, and Lucky Limeade ink pads. I then drew some thin lines using the pen tip of the Basic Grey Stampin' Write Marker and a ruler. The sentiment is from an unknown stamp set, and was stamped using Lucky Limeade. The hummingbird was stamped a few times on the vanilla, with out re-inking to get a faded appearance, then I stamped one separately and cut it out and attached it using dimensionals. I added a few rhinestones, and finished off this card.
I am entering this into two challenges, the first is the Freshly Made Sketches challenge, and next up, the CR84FN colour challenge
Thanks for popping by :)
