Red Rose and Hummingbird


I'm still playing with the pretty red mailing envelope I recently received my GMD order in, and today I made a hummingbird and a red and white rose with it. The rose is a GinaMarieDesigns die, and I used wink of stella clear all over the white portions. The hummingbird was done with a die from Cheery Lynn Designs and I added a drop of black stickles for it's eye. The leaves were made with green vellum - stamped with a Hero Arts stamp in Versafine, then heat-embossed with white ep. I fussy cut them and popped them up on foam dimensionals. The background was embossed with a SU! retired ef and the thank-you sentiment was a peel-off silver sticker.

I'm sharing this with the 2 Crafty Critter Crazies challenge #4 - you must use a creature on your project.

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a fun Monday as well as a great kick-off to another week ahead.
