Hope you have a beautiful day.

Wow this card is another last minute decision. I woke up with a migraine and wasn't going to do anything but relax then got motivated after dinner and with 2 hours to go for the Muse card challenge.

Tracey has done the most amazing card
and you have to look very closely to see where my 
inspiration comes from. The loosely attached flowers, the humming
bird and the stamped sentiment and the soft colours.

My interpretation are the softly coloured humming bird(s) with added sparkle and flowers.
I have used flowers from three different companies and leaves from another.

The sentiment is from another company and the stamped and silver embossed band is from another Stamp company. I think I have managed to combine 7 different stamp companies in the making of this card.

Not bad when you look at the end result and see that its not that cluttered looking. The flowers are attached with double sided tape and the humming birds with double sided dimensional foam tape, the top bird with it doubled up so it sat higher than the flowers.

Lets see if I can think of all the Companies:
Penny Black :Border stamp
Pretty Pink Posh: Humming Birds
Leaves: Stampendous
Flower 1: I've gone blank, I have a pile I have stamped
and embossed ready to colour but cant remember from which set.
Flower 2: Happy Little Stampers
Flower 3: Ellen Hudson 
Sentiment: Altenew

All are watercoloured with Zigs but only the birds have a bit of Wink of Stella added.
The flowers are all white embossed.


all the flowers and birds are watercoloured so 
I hope this meets requirements and is okay.
without the Twist.

One of those rare times when I have every flower
and the birds die cut.

Thank you so much for coming to visit and I hope you come again soon.
