CSAYL - Gimme The Bird!

Hi there!
Its time for another CSAYL challenge and this week the challenge is to use a bird image on your card/creation. This week's sponsor is the fabulous Pink Cat Studio:

The winner will receive 5 free digis of their choice! I was stumped on this challenge, but fortunately Pink Cat Studio has some fab bird images and I chose to work with Birds Make Christmas Cupcake stamp:

I printed my image on Very Vanilla cardstock and coloured it in with Copics. I added some Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the icing, hats and at the bottom of the cake. This layer was then matted on some Kraft cardstock. The sentiment is a free download from PCS and I tucked this in behind. I used a layer of Kaisercraft Joyful DP and sewed this onto some Kraft cardstock. I used both sides of Cheerful DP for my pink and green layers, scalloping the bottom of my pink strip and sewing them together.  Finally I tied around some twill ribbon and attached a blue button in the centre. All the layers were then added to my Certainly Celery card base.

On the inside I used another free sentiment download from PCSand finished off with matching DP.
