CD Sunday Challenge - Wonderful Wings

I'm late, I'm later for a very important date.  Well! I will be if I don't post my card for the challenge over at  CD Sunday Challenge blog.  The theme this week is "Wonderful Wings".

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.

  6. It's a beautiful card, sometimes making the decision on what to use takes longer than making the card, but you have produced a wonderful card after your deliberations. Thanks for sharing with us at CD Sunday challenges. Caz

  7. What a lovely card in such pretty colours. I too seem to either print too large or too small even though I follow the measurements! Michelle x
