Humming Along International Blog Highlights

Happy Monday, and thank you for stopping by.  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and managed to get some crafting time in.  If you're hopping by with Kylie, greetings from Ontario Canada!

While Monday's can be manic in the words of the Bangles, it's difficult to feel that way when I have a gorgeous card to share with all of you.  Even more, I'll connect you to Kylie's International Blog Hop so you can check out even MORE great cards...and maybe you'll even feel mine to be worthy of your vote!

The theme is "Encouragement" and what could be more encouraging than with a beautiful thank you?
This card actually serves two purposes as I needed to come up with a design for a colour challenge swap too!  I started with a base in Bermuda Bay, followed by a layer in Basic Black before landing on the Very Vanilla layer which I ran through the Big Shot with the Woodland textured impressions embossing folder.  A piece of Crumb Cake stamped in the same colour with the leaf image from the set is then layered on top.  I used the linen thread to create a nature feel before cutting a stitched shape circle from vellum and finally adding the cute humming bird that I watercolored in Bermuda Bay, Crumb Cake and Basic Black.  The hummingbird was adhered using Stampin' Dimensionals.  The sentiment was stamped in Bermuda Bay on Very Vanilla and also adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals.  

Thanks for visiting my blog today.  Please be sure to head over to Kylie's blog to vote for my project.  I would LOVE to be chosen to do an international blog hop.
