Sweet Nectar

Hello everyone! Hope you are having a wonderful day! Any day I see a beautiful hummingbird flitting from flower to flower is a wonderful day for me! We have been blessed in our area to have these little jewels in abundance this year. When I saw this image it just made me feel good! Just like it does to see these birds in flight.

I used my scalloped circle Nesties to cut out the image. Then I colored it with Prismas and mounted it onto the card stock base with dimensionals. I also embossed the base card on both sides with the CB Frills folder. I added the twisted paper bow as an accent. I plan to make a set of these as a gift. Hope this card makes you feel good, too! Blessings to you!
