Layers of Color Wednesday

Hello my sweet blog friends.  I have a card to share with you today that I created for Layers of Color.  I am Guest Designing over there for the month of December.  I used the beautiful set called Backyard Birds and the amazing Art Stencil Belle Brocade at the bottom for a little elegance.  I used a purple button to bring out a little of the purple color in the humming bird.

 If you follow my blog you know how much I love birds.  They are some of the sweetest creatures and some are of amazing color.  I can't wait until warmer weather comes and I get to see what kind of Hummingbirds we have here.
 I found this picture online when I googled Hummingbird pictures.  Look at this beauty.  I tried to capture his color using my Copics.  I got as close as I can with my coloring skills.  Which isn't saying very much.
Thanks so much for stopping by,
Have a wonderful week
Heather
