When I colored this bird in watercolor pencils I didn't like it. So I tried to cover up the color with Prisma pencils. Didn't like that either so I added some Copics. After all that time coloring I felt obligated to go ahead and put it together somehow. This pretty blue ribbon helps give the overdone bird a little class. Sparkle added to the bird, flourish and holly with a Spica Clear glitter pen.
I like the finished product after all. Thanks for looking!

I think your card is fabulous. Before reading your description, the first thought that I had was, I love how she colored the little birds. Now I know how to do it. :) I think the little blue rhinestone brads really make the card!!
