Hummer

A 'Get Well' card which I can post on my blog now that I know it's been received.
The embossing folder and hummingbird stamp were both freebies which came with a magazine a while ago.  I started by stamping the image with Memento 'Tuxedo Black', then lined up the card in the embossing folder to get the image in the place I wanted it.  After googling photos of hummingbirds to find out the correct colours, it would seem they come in just about every colour!  I decided to use turquoise and green Promarkers.  The embossed card was put on a card blank covered with turquoise card to form a narrow border. 

I am joining in the following challenges.

  8. I have this set too Liz and seeing this really pretty card has reminded me I haven't used it for quite a while. I love the colours of the hummer and the blue mats coordinate beautifully with it.

  17. Beautiful card Liz. It's a really classy design, I love the way the edges are embossed but not the centre, will have to keep an eye open for one like that for me lol! I'm also in love with the beautiful hummingbird stamp too, you've coloured him beautifully, wish I could colour like that! Thank you for the lovely comment on my blog Karen x
