Ladies I have some great news. We are having a Fall Digi Blog Hop at the Pixie Cottage. We will be showing some of our new digis and giving you all a opportunity to win some great prizes. Be sure to mark your calender for this coming Sunday October 31 and pop on by to join us.

Today our Wednesday challenge at the Pixie Cottage is metal. Brads, eyelets, charms etc. just so its some metal. I used a sheet of metal foil to create the corners and flower centers. My hummingbird is one of the new collections of Pixie Cottage stamps by Artish. Be sure to stop by and check out the rest of the collection at Michelle's Scrapbooking & More. There is a beautiful cardinal so perfect for Christmas. I water colored the image like the Anna hummers here in the Southwest, added some layers, stitching, a punched edge and flowers with glitter centers and there you go a pretty simple card.
Fits Challenges:
Fab & Funky: Clean and Simple
2 Sister: Anything goes
Crafty Purple Frog: Anything goes
Flourishes: No buttons or bows

Nice and sweet little hummingbird. Those corners in foil are spectacular. At first I thought this was a window box card...but you fooled me with the base and angles on the sides at the bottom. Just lovely!

Hugs, Martha
