coloured with my fav prisma pencils.. image was stamped twice & I coloured the humming bird wings
& decoupaged using out of box technique, used me new SB decorative labels die, scallop card stock base,
the DP is DCWV “nanas Nursery” simple matt & layered onto pink card.. I went for an uncluttered layout
so used some scallop corner dies from Whimsy.  the sentiment is SU another NEW stamp..lol,
