With the exception of a little food shopping, I've been crafting all day.  I should be doing laundry and cleaning.  But, I have my priorities after all!  Tomorrow is another day.  This image is from Digi Doodle Shop.  I tried to make the hummingbird look iridescent.  I had gotten a box of Pearl Ex (Stampin' Up) in a lot of crafting supplies I bought from Ebay.  I really had no idea how to use it.  I applied it with a paintbrush.  The photograph does not show the iridescence very well.  This card is a "Thinking of You" card for ChemoAngels.  

 I have entered this in three challenges:
2 Sisters Challenge:  Spring
Sundays with Crissy:  Spring is in the Air
Simon Says Stamp:  Spring
Seems everyone has spring on their minds.  Too bad here in Arizona we're in the middle of a snowstorm.  Who would have thought?

The next photo shows the iridescence a little better.

Copics:  B00, BG0000, BG000, BG01, BG10, BG13, BG19, BVOO, BV02, BV04, E11, E57, R00, R01, R11, R21, R32, YG03, YG06

Truly a beautiful card. The embellished flower matches the one you colored perfectly. Stop by my blog for a surprise.

Just popping over after being at Gail's blog, your card is wonderful. I do see some of the iridescence, I never knew how they worked either. Those colors are beautiful for the image. Sorry about your snow storm but we are having one in NV too, I sure miss Phoenix!

This is stunning! The pearl-ex shows up quite well on the close up. This is my favorite image from Digi Doodles, I just used it last week and had a great time coloring it. I LOVE the colors you chose to use! This card will most certainl brighten the recipients day.
