Hummingbirds for a Special Mom

Fantabulous Cricut is challenging us to make a project for a special mom for this weeks challenge #7.

Mom's Day
make a project for a special Mom

My mom loves humming birds. Each summer when we go to visit we sit on the back porch and hope we get to spot one of the busy lovely birds as it comes to drink the sweet red sugar water, even if we view it for only a few seconds, it's worth the wait.
I thought this bird from the "Home Accents" cartridge looked like a humming bird with it's long beak, so I used this image to make her a special purse box with matching 3"x 3" note cards.

I cut the scallop frame from the "Mini Monograms" cartridge on pg. 129 of the booklet. I used the center point feature, cut a 2 1/4" circle, when the blade was finished cutting it returns exactly back to the center of the scallop, without moving the blade, I then cut another scallop at 2 1/2" to make the wonderful scallop frame that I used behind the bird. For the scallop frame for the box I made it just a little larger.
