I think the main reason I am late is because I kept changing my mind as to what to do. I tried to find something a little different - & failed. But I did find this rather lovely humming bird on a My Craft Studio CD called Wings & Things (CD2).
I printed one of the background papers twice at A5 size, then a matching one with the flowers on & a central aperture for an image. Finally I selected the humming bird to go inside the aperture. Having sat staring at my printouts for a few minutes I decided on an easel card. Even though I watch the measurements of things created in MCS I still managed to print these a little larger than I wanted. So this is quite a large card.
I printed some extra elements - the small & large green flowers which I cut out & placed on sticky pads over the original flowers. I also printed out the red coloured flower which I used to make my easel stops. Some gold ribbon round the easel part of the card behind the main image & a little red flower with a pink gem centre placed just by the birds beak as if he was sipping the nectar from that flower.
I haven't put a sentiment on the front as I have a couple of options that I can later use this card for so will add it then.
Thank you for stopping by I hope you enjoyed your visit.
