Mother's Day Inspiration and an Announcement!

Greetings crafty friends!

I have a happy announcement to share with you today!  I've been invited to be a part of the ScrapTownLady Design Team.  It's an online store that you'll be able to find your favorite dies and of course all of your other paper crafting necessities!  She has an amazing assortment of dies that you definitely do not want to miss!

I'll be sharing more information in the near future but for today, I have my first project to to share with you.  I created a pretty Mother's Day card, sized A2.

The papers, stickers and tag here are all from the "Secret Garden" collection by Graphic 45.  I've used an assortment of beautiful Cheery Lynn Designs dies that coordinated perfectly with these papers.

Check out the babies breath that the Build A Flower Embellishment 2 creates!

To give you an idea of the layers and dimensions here.

The inspiration for my card was the birdcage and hummingbird dies by Cheery Lynn Designs.  Then I added some babies breath into the cage and finished it with my alpha's and sentiment stickers from the collection.

To make the hummingbird pop a little, I inked and then added some Glossy Accents after I applied the pearl for his eye. Then as the Glossy Accents set up, I used a pin to gently separate the fringe of his wings.   The scalloped border stickers and the seam binding ribbon added a bit more texture and interest.

I'm entering this creation into the Cheery Lynn Designs 'Lots of Layers' Challenge.
