The Hummingbird

 My monthly Card Class features a new "Best of" Series stamp set each month.  The good news is you can still purchase sets that have already been unveiled. CLICK HERE to see the selection.  During 2013 if you purchase 6 sets you will receive a FREE, $14.95 during 2014.

After embossing the woodgrain to the base of this card I used a sponge to lightly cover the ridges with Crumb Cake ink.  The flower was made from two punched, scallop circles that I crumbled up and then flattened out.
Did you know that the hummingbird flaps its wings 80 times a SECOND?  Yep!  Their wings are comprised of iridescent feathers.  Because of the energy used they consume a huge amount of food.  (I knew I liked them for a reason!)
