Parrot Tulips and Humingbird
Here is my first card I've been able to make after the surgery on my shoulder a week ago. Got some bad news today that I would have to wear the sling and not use the arm for much for the next five weeks. I seemed to have lost my creativity with the pain and pain meds so this card seemed to take me forever to make. Typing this post with one hand will probably take even longer.
The design inspiration started with a sketch challenge over at Hanna and Friends.
For this card, I used the new Barely Mine Designed Digi papers for Fred She Said, called Floral Surprise.
I then printed out a Hummingbird from the Wee Hummingbird and Petunia. There is a whole sheet of Hummingbirds in different colors in this set. Then two of the Dark Pink and one cream colored Parrot Tulips. These I fussy cut and mounted then around the left side of a spellbinders die.
The stamp set I used in the center is called Scrapbook Statements from Close to My Heart.
It's been killing me not to be able to hand stitch my cards but I did manage some here on this card. I just kept it very simple.
The dark pink gems are are the Pink Glitter gems from CTMH.
I'd also like to submit this card for the following challenges:
