Bluebells and hummingbird


This time I started with a piece of blue polished stone from my scrap basket, and stamped the Silhouette Bells on it in VersaMark, then heat embossed it in white. I colored the leaves and stems in with a green marker. Then I layered this onto a piece of white cardstock that I had punched with a Martha Steward doily lace punch, adding the gingham ribbon and a tiny tag for the sentiment, and pop-dotting a hummingbird stamped on the same blue polished stone background. Then everything was centered on a blue card.
