Feathered Friends

This weeks challenge at CD Sunday is 'Feathered Friends' and I've used some feathers kindly donated by my own feathered friend Sammy the yellow crowned amazon parrot! Don't worry, no parrots were harmed in the making of this card lol, he's moulting like mad and I always save his feathers as they are soooooo pretty. I'd love to take some pics of him so I could show him off, he's a real darling, especially as his party piece is to  lift one wing up and say 'Tickle, tickle tickle', he is soooooooo funny and such a flirt with women (he hates men tho lol).  Unfortunately he hates having his photo taken too and attacks the camera tee hee.

The BP is from Butterfly Bliss CD by artylicious, I think this is one of my favourite papers on any cd, i love the misty peaches and greens. Its printed on to pearlescent paper and distressed with my craft knife. I've used yellow bazzill bling cardstock for the base card and some brown card to mat the bp on. I've used a torn scrap of card for the branch and the owl is a glimmer chip which i've glimmer misted and inked with sepia versafine. I've added Sammy's feathers and used a stampbord square which is inked and stamped with a little bird from Elusive Images. The sentiment is also from Elusive images.

I'm also entering this little fella in the following challenges:
Sunday Stamper: Wings of a Dove
Just Scraps: Dandelion Yellow
My time to Craft: Wild Thing

Right, thats me crafted out for today. I've got some gorgeous new beads to play with and my seat booked on the sofa to watch BGT
Thanks for looking everyone
