Anyone Having a Bird-day today?

Today's card is made from the CottageCutz Tropical Bird #1 which is a 3x3 die. I really wanted to create a card with this cute bird that you could give a guy. I Googled tropical birds and was amazed at how many different colors real tropical birds come in. I found one that was this gorgeous blue and tried to copy it.

I added 2 extra tail feathers and some gems for the eyes to give him a different look than the sample picture on the die. Remember to think outside the box when it comes to using your dies.
I placed some mounting tape on a few tropical leaves to give him some dimension.

I'm anxious to make a girly card next with this cute little bird.
