Bright Birds on a Branch - CASE Study #171

I saw the inspiration photo over at the CASE Study challenge blog and, well...I was stumped.  It's such an intriguing & interesting image.  Even though it was quite a challenge, I knew I had to play along.
Take a look the CASE Study #171 image.  You'll see what I mean.
As I looked through my stamp index, I realized that I don't have any large bird images.  Surprising, since I'm so interested in watching the birds at our feeders.

The bright colors in this bird are what (eventually) inspired my card.

I used some colorful patterned papers from My Minds Eye for my flock of birds.  They're popped up on foam tape, perched on a die-cut branch.  This card came together easily.  Well.  Except for when I dropped the branch onto the floor.  Just after I had applied Tombow Multi glue to the back.  Oh yes, it landed glue side down.  Onto the carpet.  I may have said a bad word.

Thanks so much for spending a minute or two visiting!
