Angel Trumpet Flower - Card Patterns#99

I love working with sketches as a jumping point for my cards.  For this card, I used Card Patterns Sketch #99, rotated the sketch and changed the size to 5-1/4" x 5-1/4".  I did try to keep the elements in place, but did stray a bit...So I guess you'd say I was "inspired by" the sketch to create the following card.

I have two versions of this card - this is my final one, the hummingbird was an afterthought



Without the hummingbird

I search my bling box for some Flourishes, but came up short, and found a good alternative using the lovely Large Fancy Flourish from Heartfelt Creations.  The beautiful flower and hummingbird are from Heartfelt Creations Springtime Medley Line, this line also has a matching Die that I used to cut the Hummingbird.  All images are Stamped in Black Archival on Watercolor paper, then colored using the Marker Watercoloring Technique.  The Flowers are stamped and colored a second time and popped up on dimensaionals over the first image.  The lacey edge is from the Decorative Butterfly-Border Die.

Here's the Card Patterns Sketch
