Hummingbird Thank You

Good morning, everyone.  Welcome to my newest followers - it's very nice to have you here.  Today I have made a thank-you card.  I really wanted to play along over at Squigglefly in their Thank You challenge - it's the first time I've participated.  They have some lovely freebies if you'd like to join me - I chose this hummingbird and coloured it with my Prismacolor pencils.

I followed this sketch at Feeling Sketchy:

  • Embossing folder:  Sorry I don't have the name of this one because I don't own it - I have some embossed panels that someone did for me
  • Die:  Nellie's Multiframes Ovals (for sentiment)
