Stained Glass Hummingbird

Today's card is a birthday card for the lovely Darnell, known to many crafty bloggers, which managed to cross The Pond in time for her birthday today.  I was excited to see my first hummingbird in her garden when I visited her earlier this year, so this seemed an appropriate design. 
I used a Creative Expressions, Sue Wilson 'Hummingbird' die from the Stained Glass Collection.  I die cut the frame in black and  inlaid all the coloured pieces of card. This is the second stained glass card I've made and the instructions of how I made it can be found HERE on my previous post. 

I am joining in the following challenges:

  1. That certainly is a classy card Liz and perfect for Darnell! As you say 'snap' because we both posted at almost the same time using the same die - but I take my hat off to you because yours really is worth sharing! Love the paper piecing. x Anne

    1. Yours was well worth sharing, Anne, it's lovely to see how the die can be used using a different technique to give a completely different look. xx
