Beautiful Hummingbird

Hi friends!  It's Holly posting today and I've got a shimmery floral card to share with you.  Be sure to look at the second picture - the close up really shows off the blue shimmery background as well as the shimmer on the flowers and hummingbird.

I used a variety of products from Classy Cards 'n Such to create this card:

You Are Beautiful stamp set (Impression Obsession)
Sophie's Heart Mini Doily die (Cheery Lynn Designs)
Ankara Lace Doily die (Cheery Lynn Designs)
Hummingbird die (Cheery Lynn Designs)
Allison's Ribbons die set (Cheery Lynn Designs)
Shasta Daisy Strip die (Cheery Lynn Designs)
Sweet William Strip die (Cheery Lynn Designs)

I started by cutting a square of white cardstock.  I sprayed it with the Trunk Bay Glimmer Mist and then set it aside to dry.  I then set about cutting out all the other die cut shapes - the hummingbird, the flowers, the doilies, and the ribbon.

I sponged the Sweet William Strip flowers just on the edges with some brown ink and sprayed all of them with the Silk Glimmer Mist.  The Shasta Daisy Strip flowers were sponged very heavily with the brown ink and  sprayed with the same Silk Glimmer Mist.  While I had the Silk mist out, I also sprayed the Hummingbird die cut.  I set all of these aside to dry before I assembled them.

The Ankara Lace Doily was cut with Kraft cardstock cardstock and the sentiment was stamped on the center piece of the doily with some dark brown ink.  This doily was adhered onto the Trunk Bay Glimmer Mist background paper and then I glued the scallop ribbon die cut from Allison's Ribbons just below the sentiment.

With all of the flowers now dry, I set about assembling them by adhering the layers together.  I manipulated the Sweet William petals by pinching them with my fingers and I fluffed all of them up.  Each flower was topped off with a Light Coral Pearl in the center and  glued down around the sentiment on the doily.  I arranged the hummingbird above the doily, fluffed up his wings, and affixed him with Joy Foam Pads.

The lacy pieces in the corners are from the Sophie's Heart Mini Doily.  I cut this doily into 5 sections and affixed four of those sections onto the corners of my Trunk Bay Glimmer Mist background.  This background piece was adhered to a Kraft layer and then adhered to a dark brown card base.  

I love how these Glimmer Mists really shimmer and sparkle in the light!  I hope you have enjoyed this little eye candy today.  :-)
