My card for the blog hop

This is my card for the Digital release using an image called hummingbird from designer Dana's Digi's. I wanted to try an new technique with this card. I always use foam squares to give my cards a 3 D look. So I tried doing a 3D paper piecing card. I didn't get as in depth as I could have but, I wanted to try it on an easy level. I only did a few layers but it is alot of work and cutting. The effect was so wonderful, the photo doesn't really justify it. But I had fun doing it.

A closer look at the paper piecing of the flower.
Supplies: Copic markers, Digital image and Treasured moment tickets from Whimsy Stamps, Kaiser patterned paper, Bazzill cardstock, Decorative Labels Eight from Spellbinders, Kaiser craft pearls, foam squares.

Thank you for stopping by
Enjoy the hop.
