Happy Birthday hearts

Hello! I have a lot of birthdays over the next couple of months so of course I want to make their cards. This time I used glitter to make a simple card with lots of sparkle.
I got the technique from Jennifer McGuire's blog. I used double sided adhesive sheets and stuck one side to some white cardstock. I then ran it through my cuttlebug with Paper Smooches linked hearts die. It didn't cut through all the way but that was actually helpful since I wanted to keep them all together. I took off one small piece at a time and added a color glitter to it. Then I used my bone folder to really rub it in. I repeated that with all of the pieces until I had a string of colorful hearts.
I cut out two more sets of hearts to layer together and give the hearts some depth. I heat embossed the sentiment from Clearly Besotted with a rainbow embossing powder and then added a few sparkly embellishments around the hearts.  You can see a little more of the glitter in the below picture.

I am sharing this card in a few challenges:
