A Touch of Ink Happy Birthday Card

Hummingbirds are such amazing creatures!  A few fascinating facts about hummingbirds:  only found in the Americas, hummingbirds cannot walk, the smallest hummingbird species weighs less than a dime, and most beat their wings 60 to 80 times per second.  And I thought they were only pretty.  Hopefully, my “A Touch of Ink” Happy Birthday card showcases their beauty!
