I won some gorgeous images from Imagine That... digis by Kris the other day (thank you, Kris!), and I couldn't wait to use them! I have been inspired by the beautiful hummingbirds that we've had in our backyard feeders this summer. They are such a joy to watch - they are mesmerizing!
This image is from the Pretty Petunias set from Imagine That... digis by Kris. I did not colour this! I thought the pre-coloured images in this set were already so beautiful that I didn't want to change a thing! I have been wanting to make another shaker card and this time I used seed beads.
The white cardstock is die-cut with Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circles. The patterned paper on each edge was leftover snippets. The die-cut greeting is Simon Says Stamp Happy, and I added the word "day" with some tiny alphabet stickers. I finished off my card with a few sequins.
This card will be going to my Mom, who also loves hummingbirds! Here's a photo of a hummer at one of our feeders. The ruby-throated hummingbirds migrate to our part of the country each summer. These tiny birds only stay for a few short months and some of them have already started their journey home. I miss them already!
