The Flower Challenge 71 and SSS August Flickr Challenge

I'm linking up this card to two challenges: The Flower Challenge 71--Circle/Circles, and
Simon Says Stamp Flickr Challenge for August which is Anything Goes.


The circle diecut is from an old deckle edge set that is so old, I don't remember 
the company I bought it from. I want to say it's from Papertrey Ink but there was
no packaging so maybe it's not. Lil' Inkers, maybe? I miss that company.

Here's a closer look at the diecut. If anyone knows where it's from, I'd be much
obliged. It came in two sizes and I also have a rectangle set of two dies.

The hummingbird and flowers are from Simon's Dream Big release. I've never seen
a real hummingbird, and I think I colored him a bit too bold. The sentiment is 

Thanks so much for stopping by!


  1. Hi Donna. Your hummingbird is so lovely, had to pop by and tell you so. Beautiful card in every way! BTW, the die is PTI, I also have it, and you've inspired me to get it out and dust it off!

    1. Thank you, Nancy! I was 99.9% sure it was PTI--back in the day when they didn't place their dies in paper envelopes

  2. Donna this is so beautiful! The hummingbirds that come to my yard are mostly brown but I see photos all the time of hummingbirds that are beautiful and vibrant like yours! I miss L'il Inkers too!

  3. Donna, the worst has happened! Your posts aren't coming to my inbox any longer... what am I to do??
    So happy that I caught this lovely on Instagram this morning! Gorgeous flowers, and what a beautiful specimen that hummingbird is!

    1. Oh Michele--I'm so sorry I'm a no show in your mailbox. I'm so untechy. I'll try and resolve that problem. Thanks for stopping by and letting me know!

  4. Oh my Donna, this is incredible, love your colouring and the 'jagged' circle was the perfect choice!

  5. Wow, what an amazing hummingbird, Donna! Your distress-inking is just so beautiful! The deckle edge circle panel adds a natural feeling to the scene, and the sparkle of the clear sequins is so pretty! Love this card!
