Let Your Spirit Soar

Hi crafters!  I started with another background from my pixied stash.  This one used Red Oxide Pixie Sparkles.  I cut five of the Square Postage Stamp Frames in white.  I added them to the background alternating between the square and diamond orientations.  I cut the let Your Spirit Soar sentiment in black and glued it to the smallest centre square.  I cut the flower from the Hummingbird set out of both green and the pixied card.  I cut away the flowers and added them to the green stems and attached them going around the sentiment.  I added two hummingbirds that were cut out of a small piece of Aqua Lagoon pixied card.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/4"  x  8"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue. I'm not too sure about this one and I can't put my finger on why! All the elements on their own are great and the design is your usual high standard. It may be because of the way the colours have come across quite strangely on my laptop. Sorry.
