Creative Inspirations # 48

Hi girls. It might be old age but the days seem to be flashing past. Where is the time going. Since I started blogging the weeks are racing. It's such a joy to be able to spend time visiting some of the wonderful blogs out there and to be inspired by the fantastic talent on show. The fact that you have taken time to visit my little blog just blows me away. A very warm welcome. I hope you find it a worthwhile experience.
This card was made to enter the Creative Inspirations challenge where the theme is "Say it with Sepia". I have based this card closely on a card I made at a class, at the fantastic Stampaholics in Perth a few weeks ago, taken by Siobhan, my constant source of inspiration. I would love to take you all to one of her classes but they are so popular you have to book months in advance.
I have a habit of buying everything that was needed in class to make the project before I leave the shop so that I can practice the techniques at home. I am afraid that hubby, trying to tidy up to get the bins out, threw out the name strip from the bottom of the design paper and I can't remember the name of the paper. The image is One of Humming Birds by Crafty Individuals. The embellishments are from my stash of goodies.
I hope you like this one and I would love to know what you think of it so if you can spare the time please leave a comment. I find them so helpful and encouraging.
Thank you for spending time here and as you go through blogland do have a good time and in whatever else you do today be safe.
