For my card I used Feathered Friend from Shelly's Images.
For those of you who aren't bird watchers I tried to color
it to look like a Chick-a-dee.  I think I did a pretty good job.
It's such a pretty image.  I couldn't wait to use it.  I'll be 
giving this to my friend for her birthday.  She's the one
who got me interested in birds.

Here is my inspiration photo.
The flowers, leaves and mattes are cut with Spellbinders dies.
The vines are a Martha Stewart punch.  I used a Cuttlebug
embossing folder and the image is colored with Copic markers.
