Stop and Smell the Flowers!

Today's card features some of my favorite things - hummingbirds, roses and Prismacolor pencils! This is such a delicate image the pencils were perfect!

This is an A2 side fold card.  A bit unusual for me but it worked well with the stamps and dies.
I picked out the patterned paper first and then matched the colors for the rose to it.  Since roses can be almost any color, this was easier than trying to find a coordinating paper AFTER I colored the image. I used Copic markers under the colored pencils. (I'll have another post later on with coloring tips for colored pencils.)
Next I die cut the foliage from the Fancy Doves with Vine die set and glued it directly to the card.  I then die cut the bird and roses.
I tied the ribbon on the bottom of the die cut and popped it off the card using foam dots.  I used a small glue dot to adhere the ribbon to the die cut.
My next to last step was to add the sentiment. I decided to rip the edge of the sentiment strip to give it a more organic feel.  A tip for this - score where you want to tear first.  Your tear is more controlled this way.  The last step was to add sequins.  I almost forgot them, but you can see them in the first photo.  This card called for a little bling!

Dies used - Cottage Cutz Hummingbird and Roses, and Fancy Doves with Vine

I hope you enjoyed today's card.  This is such a pretty stamp and die set - I had so much fun coloring it and creating this card!  I'm a guest designer until the end of December at Cottage Cutz - they have great dies (and some stamps sets too).
