April DT Day at Meljen's

Good morning everyone! Today is my special DT Day at Meljen's. Our theme this month is Anything Goes! I was able to use one of my favorite images ... Little Hummingbird. I think this Little Hummingbird is the CUTEST I have ever seen and I couldn't wait to make something out of it :)  So, here is my card:




I hope you enjoy!!! I used all scraps for this card. The die at the bottom is a Memory Box die and the leaves on the side are the cutouts from that. They were perfect.. I couldn't resist using them! I added some Prima flowers. The two square dies are Spellbinders. I used a bottlecap which I added a piece of the paper, added the glitter around the edge and covered it with Diamond Glaze. I added gems. I added some glitter to the hummingbird too. He's so cute!! He makes me think of Spring!! I just love this little guy. The "What's Up" Stamp is Paper Smooches. And I colored the image with Copic.

Copic:
R20, R22
R22, R24, R27, R29, R39
G14, G16, G17, G19, YG21, YG23, YG25
C5, C7, C9

Challenges:
I hope you all have a wonderful day!!! See you next time!
