This card was inspired by a sketch at Sweet Stamps Blog. I needed a card design for my stamp club meeting tomorrow night for a “shoe box” project. I had played with several ideas and then saw this sketch and decided to build from there. I started with a yellow card base and added a layer of orange. The three rectangles are a combination of purple cardstock and a lovely yellow floral cardstock from Basic Grey. I layered them onto the card and added a strip along the bottom using the same yellow cardstock from the base card layered on the purple. For the image I used a hummingbird from InkaDinkaDo and stamped it in purple on a white circle. I sponged yellow around the edges and layered it on a purple lacy scalloped circle cut with a die I purchased recently at the convention from Sweet Stamps. It is called 020 Flower Multi Frame from Nellie Snellen.
I added purple flowers and leaves that I punched out with a Martha Stewart punch. To give the card a little bling, I added purple glitter to the flowers (G1093 Purple Dust semi-transparent glitter) from Sparkle N Sprinkle and some dew drops that I made using alcohol ink.
This is a second version I made using a green cardstock base and green floral paper.
