Silver Bells and Yellow Hummingbird

That sounds like an odd combination! It's ok, I have 2 very different cards to share...

This card was inspired by the graphic below. I stamped the Hummingbird and flowers from Pretty Posh Pink and coloured with Zig Markers and added shimmer with Wink of Stellar. The black border is from Mama Elephant. I've recently 're-discovered' this set and You'll see more stamped borders in the future! 
The sentiment is from The ton Stamps.  

Since this has to be one Layer, I couldn't add sequins, but I did add dimensional dots in the centre of the Petunia. 

i'm sharing this card at the following challenges:-


Make it Colourful

My next card is for this month's CAS Christmas Challenge. The theme is BELLS.


I was inspired by this card made by my friend Shirley. I Coloured the bells with Distress Stain (Pewter) and my Silver Wink of Stella.  The ribbon was coloured with Zig Markers. The stamp set is Stamplorations Holiday Sketches: Christmas Bells. The die is from Penny Black.

I'm sharing my card at the following:-
