Trumpet Vine --Case Study #35 and FTTC #113

One sure sign that spring has arrived is the arrival of hummingbirds. I put out the nectar last Wednesday morning and saw the first hummingbird at the feeder that afternoon. I'm sure these little winged jewels are also feasting on the coral honeysuckle that is blooming across the arbor which is part of the inspiration for my card. The other inspiration is  CASE Study's April Muse Silke Ledlow and this beautiful card of hers.                                  

My take on Silke's card uses a stamp from Flourishes Humming Along set, which was part of wonderful prize I won from Dawn Burnworth last fall.  I am also linking this card to Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge # 113 to use flowers on your card.

The sentiment is from PTI's Delightful Dahlia. I distressed the edges of image panel and inked them with Antique Linen ink.
I used these Copics to color the image.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful week,
