Little Hummingbird with Petunias

Today's card is a little birdie birthday card done in mostly reds and pinks. 

Starting out with white cardstock, a reddish pink plaid paper is laid down; next is an embossed white paper, then a red paper, then finally, the focal point of the card. The precious little hummingbird with petunias is from a Fred She Said collection that I won from Crafting by Designs; isn't it a cute little digi? So grateful to this website to have chosen me as a winner! The petunias and the hummingbird's throat are accentuated with glitter glue and an additional sprinkle of glitter is added on top of that for an added punch, because almost everything is better with glitter, don't you think? This is elevated with pop dots. The sentiment is double elevated with pop dots. A red ribbon and double-looped bow are placed at a diagonal at the bottom, and little red paint dots accent the upper left corner and right hand side of the image.

Here is the card:

If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved. NLT
