Hummingbird

Welcome Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors.

I am here today to give you news of a new challenge blog that
I am very please to a DT for.

The challenge blog is entitled



 and we are a monthly challenge that will
start on the 5th of each month and end on the last day of the month.
We are a themed challenge and this month the theme is:-

Pink For Breast Cancer Awareness

Here is my DT make and please visit the blog and see what my
team buddies have designed for your inspiration.  We hope  you
also come along and support us by joining in.
DETAILS

       1. Started with an white 8 x 8 card and using Pickled Raspberry
            distress ink by Tim Holt I inked all around the edge of the card.

2. Next using dark pink card I cut out the frame and added
paper from my stash.  Again with the dark pink card I
created another smaller frame and backed it with paper
also from stash.

3. The gorgeous digi was one of quite a few that I won from
Bugaboo recently and its entitled Hummingbird.  I coloured
it with my Copic and then stamped the sentiment, which reads
(Sometimes we just need to know someone cares.  If this is
one of those times I'm that someone)  I think this is one
of those sentiments that befits any occasion and pulls at
the heart string. ( Well it does mine).

4. Once everything was coloured I mounted it onto pink
card stock and adhered to my card with foam tape.

To complete I created the long tailed bow from pink glitter
ribbon and twisted the tails and secured the ends with
pink gems.  Three pink gems were also added across the bottom.

Hope to see you over on the challenge blog.

  mounds and used white card and once cut  these 
 were also embossed and then adhered to the card 
with foam tape.

3. The snowman ( don't you think he is so cute with
that lovely smily face) was taken from the cd and
was a pre-coloured image.  I then fuzzy cut around
him and using foam tape and adhered him between
the show mounds.

tree die I created the  tree and added it the card.
Red Nuvo Crystals were added just to inject that
little bit of colour.
