It's a Bird thing Challenge

This week Shelly is the host for the challenge at Crafty Creations Challenge and our challenge was to use a bird on your card, but you also had to use polkas dots (which I love) and the color green.   Luckily a piece of DCWV paper helped me with the polkas dots and the green.

The bottom wavy part I cut  by hand, as I could not find a cut that has ups and downs on any Cricut cartridge.  The pink strip behind the image is a piece of mulberry paper that gives a nice feathery effect if you tear it by getting it wet, besides it is nearly impossible to cut with a paper cutter. 
The bird image was one I found when by Goggling "bird" images, I think it was intended to be a coloring page.  I colored the image using my Promarkers, which I am beginning to improve using them.   I put Crackle Accents on the bird and hoped it would have dried to look like feathers???  The  Glossy Accents on the flowers and the umbrella I thought would give the image some dimension. 

The oval with the sentiment was cut using Cricut Design Studio, the pink is actually a frame.  I placed one oval inside another to get the scalloped frame.  I had a hard time trying to  figure out what sentiment to use till  found this Gina K Designs stamp.
 
Thanks so much for stopping by and again I am just thrilled to be asked to be a Guest Designer at the CCC.
I would love to hear what you think of my little birdie.
