larkspurs & antique engraving

Hi all! I made a card for Embellish Magazine's Color Challenge Featuring Birds. The Challenge is to use pink, brown, green and birds on your card.

This is what I came up with. I used the beautiful Year of Flowers: Larkspurs set from Papertrey Ink. The little hummingbird is from Hero Arts' Antique Engravingsset.

I also stamped the larkspurs on the background using dark chocolate for a tone-on-tone look.

That's all I have for now. Hope your day is fabulous! =)


Thanks for stopping by!


supplies:
cardstock, ribbon: Papertrey Ink
stamps: Papertrey Ink (larkspurs, sentiment), Hero Arts (hummingbird)
inks: Memento Rich Cocoa, Papertrey Ink Perfect Match
die: Spellbinders
die-cutting machine: Cuttlebug
Copics used: R89, R85, R83, R81, RV10, YG67, YG17, YG03
