Happy Bird Day

Hi bloggers!  I selected a piece of Arctic Blue card and embossed it with the Stripes Embossing folder.  Next I cut the Square Postage Frames in white.  I cut two of them and layered them.  I used the Double Stitched Squares and cut a thin frame out of some pixied card from my stash.  It used Blue Wish Pixie Sparkles.  I added it with mounting foam to the postage stamp layers.  I cut some of the greenery from the Toucan set and added it along the bottom and side of the frame.  I added pink flowers to it.  I cut the two hummingbirds out of the pixied card and added them to the card.  I used the Happy Bird Day sentiment cut in black inside the frame and used the Dear Friend cut in black and the bottom of the card.  I added a pink flower and green leaves to accent it.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/2"  x  8 3/4"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue and all that visit. What a lovely start to the day, I love the darker blue shade, at first I thought it was the Midnight Blue cardstock it has that rich deep colour but a slight sheen which is absolutely beautiful.
All in all another card to stand out amongst the rest.
Take care, stay well, be happy xxx

Hi Sue. I love the humming birds, they are such delightful birds in real life and what a good idea to have that one sitting on the corner of the frame. Great tropical colours.

Hi Sue and everyone what a gorgeous card this is. I love the blues and the way you've positioned the flowers to flow around the frame, with the little birds. As Steph says this would definitely stand out amongst the rest.
Sorry im playing catch up again, my brain is like a sieve without the reminder emails, and I've tried everything to sort it out, but can't seem to log back in with my Google account or get emails again.

Hugs
Donna xx

Would love to see these birds in action in real life/their setting, but will have to settle for a die for the moment. WakeyL

Hi Sue, a beautiful card and I love the colours. I like the way you have tipped the wings of the hummingbirds to give the feeling of movement, I shall have to try that.

Saw this one on Instagram and then remembered I didn't post. My mind is going I guess. I do love this card. I did buy this die set as I love birds and have Audubon folks in the family so very useful as well as beautiful.
Hope everyone is having a good day. Stay safe.
