Thinking of you

Flippin heck there's been some heavy showers this afternoon, it's very dark so apologies for the photos. Another quick and simple card to share today. I stamped one of the stamps from the Botanic Orchid Bouquet set from Heartfelt Creations on watercolouring card and coloured it in with distress markers. I die cut it with the matching die and also used Spellbinders floral ovals on Matt silver card to create the frame. I pulled out a background made with pixie powders and die cut an oval to mount on the silver. Hopefully the second picture shows the mica shine in the background. I stamped the sentiment that came with the set on a card blank and job done!
PS you may notice lurking in the second picture and propping the card up, a paper rose made from a Susan Tiereney Rose die, that was responsible for the burnt thumb! 


  1. Wow your rose is amazing, shame about the thumb though.
    A beautiful card, love the wee bird and the background all framed gorgeously.

    Hope the thumb isn't too sore, hugs Erika. x

  2. WOW so beautiful your background looks and the adorable humming bird!!

  3. This is such a delightful card, the background showcases the hummingbird beautifully!
    Your rose is stunning, pity about your thumb - hope it heals quickly.

  4. Gorgeous card Cara, love the image of the bird and your composition and colours. Your rose is perfect even although it caused you pain, hope your thumb is better now, Kate x

  5. Beautiful Cara! Love your bird, and so glad you showed us the second photo so we could see the amazing metallic on the fancy frame! hugs :)

  6. Simple? How about simply elegant! Beautiful card, Cara. And I promise to rest my arm. ;-) Creative Blessings! Kelly #32

  7. I love the frame, the shimmery card stock is bringing the best of the frame, absolutely gorgeous!

  8. You've been busy Cara, this is another stunner!
