It's Fussy & Fancy Time!

Hello Everyone!
It's time once again for a new challenge over at the 

 Today's theme was chosen by ME ... lol, and that theme is . . .

SPRING FLOWERS

Here's my creation . . .

INSIDE
I must admit, the bases for my 'spring flower' card came from one of the many cards I have from companies we make contributions to.  I've mentioned this many times before I know but I just can't throw these cards away because I make my own cards.  I try to share them with neighbors churches, my mother & her church, friends ... anyone who can use them but I get so darn many that I have to come up with other ways to repurpose them so that's exactly what I've done today.  Below is what remains of the original card . . .



It's amazing what a little fussy cutting will do!  LOL
I did however create the background 'sky' panel by using Tim Holtz 'broken china' Oxide Distress Ink.
 Distress Oxide Ink Pad - Broken China 
And the pretty topper lace panel is Sue Wilson - Configurations 'Graceful Lace Trim'
Sue Wilson Designs - Configurations Collection - Gracefull Lace Trim

 I popped up the hummingbird using 3M dimension tape and my sentiment (one of my favorites) is an oldie but goodie by The Stamp Pad Co.

Another peek at the finished card ...


 I do hope you will come join in our challenge fun!  See you there!

Thanks so much for stopping by and as always . . .

Ah, spring flowers... my favorite! I love how you've taken this card and made it even better with your background and dimension. Love the die at the top, too. I have a few things like this set aside, including some images from food packages. Someday I might even use them!

What a beautiful card design and I just love those flowers. And, the colors are magnificent. I love the fancy edge die you used on top too. I think I have some similar and have not ever used them. I think you have inspired me now.

You always do such a fabulous job repurposing these cards and that you share them with others is what it is all about, and it is good they are being recycled instead of put in the trash. I just love how you used the border die with it!
