Hummingbird Glory

Hi everyone!  Today's card pairs a new sketch challenge with one of my favorite stamp and paper combinations. The sketch is from the OWH Stars and Stamps Sketch Challenge #35. Super easy and definitely a keeper. The image is a digital stamp from Bugaboo Stamps and the gorgeous patterned paper is Sundance Stripe from My Minds Eye.

My card base is Chocolate Chip layered with a slightly smaller piece of Turquoise then Sundance Stripe patterned paper. I added my signature paper piercing around the edges of the image then layered it on to Chocolate Chip cardstock before attaching to the card base with mounting tape. The shadow layer is simply a strip of Chocolate Chip cardstock and the beautiful orange gems are a must have from Wal-mart.

Hope you have wonderful day!
