Hi, Diane here today with a card for our challenge
for this weeks theme, which is  Hummingbirds.

 I had my Memory Box Garden Leafy Branches stencil
sitting out from a previous project so decided to use it once again.
I sponged on Certainly Celery ink with a Mini Ink Blending Tool.

I cut Memory Box Tall Chloe Stem from white card stock.
I colored the stems with a Dim Green Copic.
The flowers, I added Art Institute Dries Clear Adhesive to each little circle,
then applied white flocking.

I cut Memory Box Forest Hummingbirds from water color paper,
then used TH Distress water color markers to color.

A little tip is to maybe cut all your die cuts before placing on your base.
I had all my flowers adhered, then cut my hummingbirds only to realize
they would be facing the wrong way, the way the flowers had been placed.
I had to remove them all, and rearrange.
Let me just say it would have been MUCH easier to not to have done that!!

Thank you for visiting with me today!
