Blue Columbine and Hummingbird

Today I'm featuring a new release from Fred She Said, called Hummingbird and Columbine. This set comes pre-colored in many choices of colors or as a digi to color yourself.  I chose the Blue Set and am madly in love with this card. These images are to die for and are all colored so beautifully.

The inspiration for the design of this card is from a Midnight Madness Sketech Challenge.
The papers are from the CTMH Fanfare paper pack. I used an inked cuttlebug embossing folder for the blue dotted papers on either end on the framed image.
There is lots of dimension to this card since each flower and hummingbird was cut out then puffed out with 3D foam tape.

The Hand Stitching was done with my own unique design with matching Embroidery Floss.
