Hummingbird Card

I made this little card today to inter in the weekly challenges a Cricut Cardz Challenge and BBTB2. The first was to use the colors RED, WHITE, and BLACK in your card, the second was to use a hummingbird image.
Recipe:
Card base in black: 4.5" by 5ish inches-I wasn't accurate!
Red mat : 4 4/16" by 5"
Black mat: a little smaller-  dry embossed with Cuttlebug & Swiss Dots folder (my fav.!)
Hummingbird: 3"from Disney Princesses DCT with two wings for dimension, dry embossed and de-embossed to soften the effect.
Eye: Inkssentials Gloss in black.
Flower : 2.45" from Gypsy Wanderings with Hearts at 1" from DP welded in center. Embossed to add shine, and popped with dimensional adhesive.
Heart Layer: 1" also from DP.
Tombo adhesive was used for everything else.
The interior is matted in white, the small flower was made using the cut-outs from the larger flower and embossed. The border is a sticker from my stash. TFL!
