CAS[E] this Sketch #274

I'll just get right to Donna's Sketch today... oh you are going to LOve it!


Let your creative brains go crazy with this one … I immediately saw a window to my world - it's Hummingbird time, peeps!

"mean the most … thank you!"
 

I was hoping to show you that my rectangle 'window' is cut from vellum … alas, I fear I've failed - but here is this gorgeous Ruby Throat up close:
 

 
I am always pleased to bring out this darling Wplus9 set - pairing it with my very new Altenew Build-a-Flower Morning Glory was so much fun!  and notice I've stamped it on linen cardstock - isn't that interesting?  added a tickle of Stickles?  A bit of embossing on my circle die-cut adds a pretty garden where this little darling grows.
 
How much fun will you have with Donna's Sketch?  I'm thinking the sky's the limit!

Supplies:
MFT:  Pierced Rectangles, and Circle Die-Namics dies
Anna Griffin/Cuttlebug by Cricut embossing folder

Looks like a scene right out of my backyard. Classically wrought...the linen paper makes it even more elegant. And, yes, I noticed the vellum window.

Gorgeous rufus hummingbird, Michele. I counted 14 total at our 2 feeders this evening. They were in an eating freeze just before dark. We Love watching our hummers and now the babies are showing up:-)

Your design is just perfect for the sketch. Love your vellum window, flower stamped on linen paper and added stickles to your birds throat. TFS your beauty. Hugs..

Simply lovely, Michele ... bright and colourful in a magical kind of a way (I always think hummingbirds have a magical quality about them!) ... perfect with the soft, subtle vellum (which I see well on my screen!). Hugs, Anita :)

I can see that it's a vellum window and it looks lovely, Michele. I have so much of that linen paper and never think to use it. I'm getting it out and stamping my NBUS morning glories on it.

Photography never plays fair lol. I am struggling on the road, but you can only do what you can.... Your card is so very beautiful Michele, and the bird is such a wonderful highlight!
