Hello Classy Friends.  Diane here with you today with a gorgeous card that I am
sure will make us all want those cold and dreary days to go away!!
I started my card out with the beautiful and very affordable embossing folder "Doily Lace".
To make my hydrangea "bloom", I used PanPastels Coloring Garden Kit  using the colors
Permanent Red first by sponging it on a scrap piece of paper, I then added Magenta on top,
giving a contrast in color.  Both these colors are included in the PanPastels coloring kit.
To cut my flower, I used Cheery Lynn Designs Tiny Flower Kit, cutting them out on my
prepared paper, I ran the die through three times, giving me plenty of flowers to work with.
I added tiny leaves using Impression Obsession "Leaf Cluster" underneath, also colored with the PanPastels Coloring Garden Kit.
The tiny hummingbird is a Cheery Lynn Designs die "Tiny Things With Wings" and
colored with Twinkling H2O's Autumn Brillance giving the bird a nice shiny look!!
The sentiment is JustRite's "Just The Right Words".  I finished my card by adding a pretty pink bow and Stickles to the flower centers.
I hope you have enjoyed today's post and will "see you" again soon!!
