Birds of a Feather - Life is a Song

I started with a Aqua Mist base card and embossed the leaf pattern with the Cuttlebug and A2 leaf branch folder. Using the circle Nestabilities I cut 3 circles and on the smallest of the 3 I stamped the humming bird and flower, I used Tombo pens and misted the stamps with water before stamping, this gives the image a watercolour effect then using the same pink shade pen I coloured and stamped the words, I love the clear words from PTI as they allow me to shape then into curves.
I layered all 3 circles with foam pads and added them to the card then added the Aqua pearls to the middle circle, i finished by tying the ribbon I received from Cindy a PTI friend.

Card dimensions; 5.5" x 5.5" or 14cm x 14cm

What is the finished size of your cards Jak? It isn't always easy to get dimensions when there is no point of reference in a photo - and yours are great by the way because they are lovely and clear - but it helps with inspiration when you can visualise a finished size
