Blingz Hummingbird!

Hope everyone is having a great week. Life is still busy but I'm finding a little bit of time to get some stamping done.
Today I wanted to share a card that I made using Under the Sea Shimmerz Blingz. A friend of mine asked me to make a card with a hummingbird on it and Shimmerz immediately came to mind. Hummingbirds are so beautiful and shimmery and I thought my Under the Sea Blingz would be perfect for my project. The hummingbird is a free digi stamp from Squigglefly. I colored the image with copic markers and then highlighted it with Under the Sea Blingz.

Speaking of Shimmerz...did you see that there are some fabulous new summer colors? You can see all of the new colors on the Shimmerz blog HERE.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

I think I might have said this before but I thought I'd state it again as a little disclaimer before posting my project...I suck at non-card projects. Not sure why I can't step out of the card box but 3-D/gifty items are always extremely difficult for me. I had never made a genie bag before this challenge. Here is my bag...

{Angelic Jena} sits atop a beautiful crescent moon! She is sweet, innocent and a super-versatile image for birthdays, babies or "just because".
