hummingbirds

Good morning all.I hope you are well.2 days off work now and then back in on tuesday.
am really going to make the most of the 2 days off  with my 2 special men :D
On to my card today which i really enjoyed making.I am really liking making this style of card at the mo.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:
1.Papertake Weekly Challenge - Sketch 68 - Fantastic sketch ladies#
2.Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge - Week 51 - Bingo, i chose blue,flowers and glitter
3.The Paper Shelter Challenge - Challenge 66 - Vintage/Shabby Chic

Products used are:
White pearl card
Distress inks - Broken China & Tumbled Glass
White pearl mica spray
Stickles stardust
Marianne design swirl die
Wild Orchid Craft roses and gardenias
Wild Rose Studio papers - Annabelles Meadow & Sentiment
Kaisercraft clear stamp - Hummingbirds

The stamp has been stamped on to brush effect card and then i mixed the distress inks with the pearl mica spray and brushed it all over.

and a sideways view.
Thanks so much for popping by, means a lot ;D
hmmph so not amused at hubby, he is laughing at me cos i just caught a glimpse of michael myers from the halloween films on an advert trailer.
i am so scared of him truly scares the jeebs out of me,i have a real fear of masks,dolls etc.my poor heart is hammering and my hands go all sweaty.i will have my revenge.lol
