Crafty Ann's Challenge - 23 November 2012 - Birds or animals (but NO people)

Today is the start of another challenge over at Crafty Ann's Challenge Blog.  The topic for this fortnight is "birds or animals" but NO people are allowed this time.
For my card I have used Crafty Ann's bird on a blossom branch digital image which I have coloured in with Promarkers, die-cut and used a chalk ink pad around the edges.  The backing papers I have used are Crafty Ann's brown polished stone and Crafty Ann's yellow abstract 2 backing papers.
I have done lots of different layers and different shapes and punches out a decorative edge with a Martha Stewart lattice border punch.  I have inked some die-cut flowers (Tim Holtz die) with yellow, orange and brown distress ink and put together with a brad for some dimension.  I have finished the card off with Papermania Glitterations, die-cut sentiment and ribbon.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Mark's Finest Papers - Make it pop
Lady Anne's Challenge - Anything goes
The Squirrel and the Fox - Anything goes
Cupcake Inspiration - Photo inspiration
One Stitch at a Time - Use a digi
Whoopsi Daisy - Die-cuts and punches
Creative Card Crew - Anything goes
Papertake Weekly - Ribbon or pearls or both
Inspire me Friday - Anything goes

Make sure you pop on over to the Crafty Ann's Digi Shop as there is now a FREEBIES Section where you can grab something for free.  Whilst you are there make sure you check the rest of the shop as some kits have been reduced in price.
