Tammy's A Day for Daisies and Eureka Stamps

Today begins a new challenge at Tammy's Scrapin Corner

The theme this week is Challenge #23 - 8-13-2012 - Add Some Flowers!  Here is my first card using Hummingbird by A Day For Daisies. What better way to add some flowers than with an adorable hummingbird.
I used my Darice embossing folder to emboss dots on the light blue paper behind the hummingbird. I used a Sketchabilities to cut that paper. I used my EK punch on the black paper. All of the papers were from my scrap box.. which isn't any less.. I think it reproduces LOL The flowers were made with My Favorite Things dies (yes they are my favorite LOL) many different dies. The leaves are different dies. I glittered the edges of some of the flowers. I used glitter on the neck of the hummingbird as well. I colored him with Copics. I should have written down the colors..I can't remember. And I stitched around the edge with green thread.
Challenges:
The second card I did for this challenge:
The image is from Eureka Stamps - 'Friends Are'. I colored the hearts and dots with Copic. I used all scraps.. inked the edges of the white with black ink. I wet and crumbled the black paper. I used ribbon and pearls from my stash and made the three flowers with rolled roses from My Favorite Things. I also stitched around the edges. Simple card.. well.. simple for me LOL Tip: When crumbling cardstock to make it all distressed and wrinkled, wet it thoroughly first. It makes it much easier to crumble up without ripping. Then just lay it out, flatten it a bit and let it dry thoroughly.
