Fuschia and Hummingbird

Hello, friends :-)  Today I have made a card for my Mom, who loves hummingbirds.

This gorgeous image is called Fuschia and Hummingbird by Delicious Doodles.  I coloured it with pencils, fussy-cut around the image, and added three small gems.  I started the card by covering a white card base with green cardstock, onto which I layered floral DP and added two strips of fuschia polka-dot ribbon.  I glued a number of leaves to the card and mounted the image on top, adding a flower attached with a gem-filled brad.  I glued three more leaves and added three more flowers, also attached with gem-filled brads.  Lastly I added a chip-board tag (that matched the DP) tied with fibre and a silver heart charm tied with fibre.  Here are the supplies used:
  • Digi stamp:  Described above
  • Coloured pencils: Prismacolor
  • Cardstock:  Recollections
  • Designer paper and matching chipboard tag:  Rowena Stott
  • Fibre:  Forever in Time
  • Flowers, leaves, charm, brads, ribbon, gems:  Dollarama
