DCM challenge - Birds birds birds

It is Rein's turn to set the dare this week :o)

Bird, Birds and More Birds
I love birds so I'd like you all to make a card featuring birds this week
......a bird in the snow, a birds nest, a carrier pigeon, a white stork or birds in the sky, or...,or... even big bird!

Now I mentioned yesterday that my card went somewhat pear shaped :o( At first I used a Paperartsy bird in the tree but it just didn't go with the child like feel of the card so I ended up covering the paperartsy bird with more green tree and then I shrunk down a little Imaginisce birdy and used that instead. The end result is a card I would like to rip into tiny little pieces. Hey ho though we all make duffers every now and then I'm sure!

Paper - Basic Grey (can't remember if it's sugared or sultry)
Buttons - from stash
Thinking of you stamp - Studio g I think
Green tree cardstock - Love Elsie
Ickle birdy - Imaginisce on shrink plastic

S'funny thing about cards. See I think your card is super duper and I would never have guessed you would hate it if you hadn't said!
