Getting Some Nectar


Birthday is the challenge this week at Tuesday Throwdown, challenge #61. Hope you'll play along this week. You know you need a birthday card. :-)
Tuesday Throwdown is sponsored this week by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. I am using the Hummingbird with Scripture image. Because it was a birthday challenge, I didn't use any of the scripture in the set so I would have room for the HB sentiment.

 I colored with Copics and made my flower 3D by stamping three times and cutting out twice, then popping on. Of course, I did sponging in three colors...still loving it.
I used a Spellbinder lattice rectangles die, added a ribbon, flower, and a tag.

I'm entering my card into Frosted Designs challenge which is coloring this week. I did my coloring of the hummingbird and flowers with Copics.

I love hummers :) They are the most fascinating bird and I love watching them feed from the feeder on our porch. You have coloured this one fabulously and I"m loving the punched border at the bottom.

Pretty sponging around Mr. Hummingbird. :) And the flowers popped up gives this such a 3D feel, like it's a real scene being played out in front of you.

Considering email updates yet for your blog? Hmmm?
