Humming bird hope card made using the Art Nouveau cartridge

Hello, friends!

I hope you are all well!

Today's card is made using the Art Nouveau Cricut cartridge (not Art Philosophy :-)) I am glad I had some time yesterday to make something else using this cartridge. It has some really beautiful cuts on it and this humming bird is no exception. I just love humming birds! They make me think of my grandfather. He had humming bird feeders on his porch, so they were always around. He used to sit out on the porch to watch them. I always thought it was so cute!

I used the paper from Close To My Heart called Dreamin'.

The stamp is from the Art Philosophy bundle.
I cut the humming bird out at 3". Then I cut out at 3" circle out in brown to back the cut. The flower is a sticker that coordinates with the Dreamin' paper.
The ribbon was purchased at Michael's and the adhesive backed pearls are from Close To My Heart.
