Hummingbird

Welcome to my new follower, Maristella of Louca por porcelana!  Thank you for letting me know you are one of my new followers.

A card today which I hope has reached its destination.  I had a snippet of this background in my bits box from this project HERE which I liked too much to throw away.  It seemed the perfect background for this hummingbird image.
For the background I used the rubber band heat embossing technique with silver embossing powder over a Distress Ink background. The hummingbird is a Sizzix die, 'Free Bird', cut in black and matt silver card.

I am joining in the following challenges:

    1. Oops, sorry! I entered it into just five challenges as I knew the rules, but when someone left a comment to suggest I enter it into the AAA challenge, I forgot that LIM was one of the challenges I'd already joined in and added an extra challenge. xx
