Sweet Hummingbird.... A Happy Thing

What a sweet little hummingbird he is!!

I wasn't initially drawn to the images in the "A Happy Thing" Sale-a-Bration Stamp set...

But, since I've played with them, I have fallen in love with them!!

We start our card with a Crushed Curry Card base, then added a strip of Best Year Ever Designer Series Paper (yours FREE with a $50 order during Sale-a-Bration) over top of a Baked Brown Sugar strip of Card stock to the side of the card.

Next, we stamped our hummingbird in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and punched him out with our 2 1/2" Circle Punch.  

Tuxedo Black Memento Ink  132708  $5.95

2 1/2" Circle Punch  120906  $16.95

Then, we colored him in - his face with our Daffodil Delight Blendabilties Marker (the medium shade) and his belly with our Coastal Cabana Blendabilities Markers (the outside edges with the medium shade and the center of his belly with the lightest shade).

You can get 12 different packs of Blendabilities Markers (including the Coastal Cabana and Daffodil Delight Markers used here!) for FREE with a $50 order during Sale-a-Bration.

Finally, we mounted our sweet hummingbird on top of a Baked Brown Sugar piece die-cut with our Labels Collection Framelits, added a Linen Thread bow and some Candy Dots!

Labels Collection Framelits  125598  $26.95

Linen Thread  104199  $4.50

Brights Candy Dots  130931  $5.95

Subtles Candy Dots  130933  $5.95

Neutrals Candy Dots  130934  $5.95

What a cute card - and thanks so much to Carolina Evans for her inspiration on this card!!

I hope you were Inkspired today!!
