Fusion Card Challenge - Sweet Orange Blossoms/Hummingbird

Fusion Card Challenge has a gorgeous photo and/or sketch challenge this week - I am still their guest and haven't been kicked out yet HAH!

Are you thoroughly confused by my title and my creation? Me too.  Although I love little hummingbirds and how they fly around fighting between themselves, darting all over and causing my family and myself to dive for COVER…..I decided to be inspired by the sketch (sort of).

I began by water colouring Clearly Besotted Floral swag from Fairytale Ending and die cutting with the matching dies.

Then, using the gorgeous Neat & Tangled Ornate Frames I stamped and die cut (matching dies) the rectangle frame.  On the inside rectangle I stamped one of the sweet sentiments from Papertrey Ink's Petite Places: Main Street Stamp Set.

I popped up the flowers onto the Ornate Frame and them popped the frame and sentiment panel up onto a piece of Polka Dot vellum.

Using the frame from Mama Elephant's Madison Avenue Framed tags - I die cut a white cardstock frame and inlaid it into the negative frame from a piece of patterned paper - clear as MUD?

I laid those frames on top of the vellum which was layered onto half of piece of Lovely Lady and Soft Stone cardstock.

I finished it off by adding a few enamel dots and iridescent sequins.

Thank you Fusion Card Challenge for having me be your Guest Designer for April - my thinking cap was screwed on tight this month!!
