This is going out to Mary who loves flowers and hummingbirds. We were also to include repeating images. Since all my supplies for this are from ODBD the paper coordinates with the hummingbird and bee balm stamps so the "repeat" was pretty easy...I did stamp the flower twice on the cut out. I also applied wink of stella to the hummer and the flowers which looks really cool IRL but is hard to see.
If you know someone who could use some cheer, see the Teapot Tuesday thread and request a party.

Oh Polly, that is FAB. I love it, I'm sure Mary will too. It's kind of like a zoomed-in spotlight effect. I'm glad I didn't use that hummingbird, I nearly did and then remembered my old neglected little one. The bee balm is beautiful, too.

What a beautiful scene you’ve created here Polly! The monarda flowers are one of my fav’s in the garden just to attract the hummingbirds! Love the spicy scent of the flowers too!
I really like the cutout sky back panel for interest and the scalloped diecut too!
Karen’s mother will love this delightful card!

Oh my Polly, what a gorgeous perennial garden scene this is with your bee balm and hummingbirds. I love how you stamped a panel and layered it over the designer paper- this creates a lot of depth to this card that I love, and Mary will too! ~Karen.
