Let's Get Sketchy at Crafting for all Seasons

Well, here we with another new challenge at Crafting for all Seasons.
Thank you so much for all your lovely wonderful creations for our last challenge.
Remember to stop by the challenge blog and see if you were amongst our winners.
So the new challenge is a:
SKETCH CHALLENGEand here is the sketch we would like you to use:
So remember you can twist the sketch in any way you like but we must be able to see the basic sketch on your card/project.
For this challenge we are lucky to be sponsored by:

So here is my card for this challenge:
I have used an image from:
and the image is called Hummingbird and Columbine.
The image is coloured with my Prismacolour Pencils and then I have used some glamour dust to give it a bit of sparkle.  I don't know about you but when I see humming birds I always think they should sparkle!! No, just me then!!! LOL
I also added some little seed beads for the flower stamens.  The background is done using two different shades of blue chalk dotted around and then brushed over lightly with cotton wool to blend them a bit.

That beautiful Hellebore is from Wild Orchid Crafts and the two different ribbons are both from, of course Crafty Ribbons. The three little gems are from my stash.
So there you have it peeps.  I hope you will find the time to join in with our sketch challenge this time.  Please remember to stop by the rest of the Design Team's blogs and leave them some love (links on the DT tab at the top of the page!)
