My Fine Feathered Friend

It's Marvelous Monday, and today, I'm introducing you to my Feathered Friend. Isn't he beautiful? He's today's featured image at Shelly's Images. You can get him for your very own at a special price, today only, in Shelly's Store! Fly on over to the store and get him before the sale is over! Check out Shelly's other fabulous images, while you're there!

This image reminds me of spring and all the birds singing.. and I am SO READY for spring! I felt like this image just screamed to be made into a male card! Feathered Friend has been colored with Promarkers. I went with a fun layout for this one, and two patterned papers from my stash. The brown and white DP is from my scrap box and seemed perfect for this card. These papers seemed to go so well together, once I got them on the card. I like how it turned out. I used sheer brown ribbon from my stash to make a double bow. The sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set by Stampin Up and punched with word window and modern label punches by Stampin Up. I attached it with foam mounting tape for 3D effect and dimension.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
