Dapper Hummingbird

Howdy, kids!  As predicted yesterday, we had a series of pretty good thunderstorms roll through which was awesome because I didn't have to be out in the rain so I could just enjoy the thunder from home.  It cleared up while the hubs was on his way home and then rained again after he got here, so that was good timing :)  I do love a good thunderstorm.

Anyway, the current challenge at SUO Challenges is to use your favorite new paper, so today I took a deep breath and cut into my new Moroccan DSP:

I let the patterned paper inspire the colors for my hummingbird:  Emerald Envy, Dapper Denim, and a bit of Cajun Craze (though the pattern I used doesn't have any Cajun Craze in it, I still liked the accent of dark orange with all the blue and green).  I chose to do a hummingbird today because of the challenge from What Will You Stamp:

I have been enjoying the new Layering Circles Framelits, which so far are the only ones of the four new layering collections that I've gotten.  I'm a little bummed that the circles are smaller than the retired circles Framelits, but having the scalloped circles and better sizes for matting is nice.

Well, I need to skedaddle to the post office to pick up a box to mail a birthday present to a friend whose birthday was yesterday.  Oops.  Catch you later, y'all!

Supplies, all SU!
Stamps:  Picture Perfect
Ink:  Emerald Envy, Dapper Denim, Cajun Craze
Paper:  Dapper Denim, Cajun Craze, Very Vanilla, Moroccan DSP
Accessories:  Layering Circles Framelits, Dimensionals, Emerald Envy ruched ribbon
