Embellish Magazine Color Trends Challenge + Birds

Every morning I'm serenaded by all the little birdies outside my window.  I actually love birds.  They're so beautiful and most have a very sweet song.  I'm not in the Audubon Society or anything but, I can easily appreciate the beauty in these feathered creatures.  I think my favorite bird is the Cardinal.  Those red feathers and that little "faux hawk" on the top of their heads is so cute to me!

That's why this challenge over at the Embellish Magazine Blog was so appealing.  I decided to participate not to even attempt a "win" really but, simply because I loved the colors and of course the use of birds.  I also used the sketch #64 from Skipping Stones Design to give me a little push.  The linky was closed but, I like the sketch so...

Here are the deets:

This photo alone is beautiful.  Here is my offering:

At second glance I probably should have cut the DP to show more of the Kraft card base but, I think it worked out.  I like it.

Thanks for droppin' in!
