The current ODBD challenge is birds. Anybody who knows me much at all knows I love birds, so I combined this challenge with today's sketch.
Currently I'm deriving a lot of entertainment from two little coal tits (think chickadee only smaller) who are arguing with each other at the feeder and keep chasing each other round the place.
My papers are My Mind's Eye, with distressing and sponging. The music strip is an IO stamp on kraft, embossed with clear EP and then sponged with Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain. The sentiment tab is a piece of chipboard trimmed from a 12" scrapbook border. I went exotic with my bird and tried to colour him like a tanager, since they seem to have a finch-type beak.

Beautiful Sabrina! I love to watch the birds also. Your feathered friend is wonderfully colored, and the texture really makes him stand out. Lovely card!

You could color him whatever colors you want and I wouldn't know the difference, cuz I don't know my exotic birds! : ) Your colors are beautiful and I love all the distressing on your pretty card~ Great work~

Sounds like you not only like birds, but you know a lot about them. Great card with so many elements.
