Just sitting here thinking about you

This is such a fun challenge at TOMIC...we can use an animal on our card/project with the sketch shown below.  Also Just Magnolia has a challenge where anything goes with the option of pearls and swirls.

It's sort of funny how this card came about..i had purchased these two images together with some other images as well and when my friend, Margo saw them, she said...she thought it was clever to buy the swing for the bird..and i hadn't even thought of that.  So thanks, Margo for the idea!

Also, one thing i did to make the bird sit on the swing is i cut the tail off and put the tail behind the swing and then i used a foam dot to make the body be in front of the swing.  Making this card brought back memories of my grandma's bird, she had a parakeet and the bird used to say, "Pretty bird"..so i thought of that while i was coloring.

Here is my card:

How sweet! Love how you've done this "pretty bird"! I'm sure he loves it out on the tree branch better than in his cage!
