Great Impressions Stamps Theme Challenge May 2017 has a feminine theme for the month. Today I made this card for a friend whose birthday is this month.
All products are Stampin' Up. My card base is Blushing Bride. The stamp set I used for the hummingbird and rose is Picture Perfect. The rose is a triple stamp done with Pink Pirouette and Rose Red. The leaves were double stamped using Old Olive and Garden Green. The hummingbird involved quadruple stamping with Always Artichoke (stamped full strength and once stamped off), Old Olive and Rose Red. I used the Confetti embossing folder, which has a built-in oval. I die cut a piece of Whisper White with the largest scalloped Layering Oval Framelit, sponged it with Pink Pirouette and stamped the sentiment with Rose Red, using my MISTI. The envelope was decorated with a stamp from Birthday Fiesta. Both stamp sets are retiring this month. I'm so glad I own them!

Thanks for looking!
