Hummingbird Birthday Card

Hello and Happy Tuesday!

Just a quick post for you today - I wanted to share the birthday card I made for my grandma.  She loves hummingbirds.  For as long as I can remember she has had a hummingbird feeder on her patio and when we visit she will tell me about the different hummingbirds that she sees regularly.  She would probably sit and watch those little fellas all day if you let her!!

Anyway, a while back I was shopping at a little local scrapbooking store and saw a package of brads that had 2 hummingbird brads in it.  I knew when I saw it that I could use them in some way on a card or creation for my grandma.  Here's what I came up with:

Thanks for coming by to take a look!  I hope you're having a great week so far!!

Solid cardstock from Bazzill and Recollections
Pattern paper from my scrap stash
Flowers from Pagoda cut at 4 inches
Hummingbird brad
White Sakura gel pen
