Muse 283 - Hello

I had fun with this week's Muse challenge, where Kim gave us this adorable inspiration:

I focused on Kim's:
-pink, grey and white colours
-white sentiment on grey background with pink frame

I have adored these Pretty Pink Posh hummingbirds ever since they were released, but never quite got around to purchasing them. When I mentioned this to Cat, when she made this card for a previous Muse challenge, she very generously stamped and cut a bunch of them and popped them in the mail to me.

Today was the perfect day to use them (notice how their neck ruffs are scalloped like the cupcake icing!)! I coloured them with Copic markers and then worked on my layout. This Hello shaker die seemed just the thing to mimic Kim's embossed sentiment panel, so I cut it out of white cardstock, coloured the frame with one of the same Copics and then layered some grey cardstock underneath.

I used:


  1. this is as sweet as it gets, really love your beautiful hummingbirds!

  2. Those little hummers are so cute, Ardyth :)

  3. Beautiful Copic coloring and fabulous take on Kim's card! Cat was so sweet to send these darling hummingbirds off to you...they're perfect :)

  4. Ardyth, wow you've made the absolutely most perfect card. Those hummers are so darling with the grey and pink coloring. I am so glad you found use for them, they are just darling.

  5. This really is amazing, Ardyth! I especially love your use of the colors.

  6. I love this so much Ardyth! I have that stamp set and they look gorgeous in pink!

  7. We may not be able to vote for your card but we can certainly comment. This looks so pretty, love the colours you have used for your card and your inspiration from Kims card, just perfect.
