Picture Perfect

I am very sad to say the Picture Perfect will be retiring in a month!!! 😣 I saw a gorgeous card made by Brandy Cox and it inspired me to make this card. I loved the background she created with the strips of cardstock behind the focal point and the way the humming bird was cut with the layers on the wing and tail..
My card also has the hummingbird from the Picture Perfect set. Instead of a sentiment I decided to use the flowers from the Awesomely Artistic stamp set. I stamped them in one of the new in colours called tranquil tide. The flowers were then coloured with soft sky bermuda bay and another new in colour called lemon lime twist using a blender pen.
The strips in the background were soft sky cut at 1″ × 5 1/2″ and whisper white cut at 7/8″ × 5 3/8″. The white strips were embossed with the pretty petals embossing folder. The hummingbird was stamped twice .. first in soft sky then bermuda bay and then black archival. The throat and bottom of the wing were stamped in lemon lime twist. I then hand cut one whole hummingbird and part of the tail and the wing from the second hummingbird. I layered them on the top of the bird using dimensionals. The layering ovals framlit dies were used to cut out the scallop oval I used the largest scallop oval for that .. The white stitched oval was the largest oval from the stitched shapes framelit dies..
