Get Well Hummingbird

I have seen a lot of raised reversed cutout images lately in card magazines and in craft blogs.  Usually the cut out image is a butterfly or simple shape.  I tried a hummingbird for this get well card and it worked out well.  
The Spring Moss cardstock is raised above the turquoise fan patterned paper with dimensional adhesive.  The paper underneath the hummingbird I placed at an angle to mimic its feathers.  The flowers in the corners were stamped with watermark ink and then embossed with clear embossing powder.  The "Happy Healing" sentiment is also embossed but with silver.
Every hummingbird needs a flower so I made this ribbon flower on a Scor-tape circle I cut from an adhesive sheet.  Much cheaper than a Gluber and just as easy.
The embossed flower on the white, much more subtle but just as pretty, finishes off the inside.
