Oh Happy Day!

Oh My Goodness!! I am soooo LOVING Doodle Pantry Images!  They are so stink'n cute!!  Now, that being said...I'm not sure who's bright idea it was to cut out the bird with 30,000 feathers on it (mine).....It took FOREVER!! :0) I guess it was worth it though, cuz I think he is extra cute!!  Let me know what you think!

This little guy is super happy about being in the Doodle Pantry Challenge #25 - DPDC25  and....
In the Cricut Cardz Challenge #112 with Mary over at Cardz TV - Tag, You're It
Shopping Our Stash #60 - My Precious....I'm a closet paper hoarder...but it doesn't all fit in the closet any more!!! Ahhh!  I have put myself on lockdown...no more new paper until you use what you have! :0)
The House That Stamps Built DCC718 - Outdoor or wildlife challenge
The Paper Shelter - Anything Goes #73
Love To Create #24 - 3 of something

Anyone else find it ironic that I just got a cricut.....I have a printer that prints color images....and now I'm making cards where I color in the image and cut it out by hand!!!  Crazy!!  Ok, enough of my jibber-jabber...lets get on the the recipe! :0)

This card is....well, not an A2.  I'm not sure what it is called but it is 4x9 and fits in a regular business envelope.  I'm sure someone with a little more experience will be able to correct me! :)  
My image is Doodle Pantry and he is printed at 4 inches.  I don't have copics yet so I colored him in with good 'ol Crayola Pencils.  I glossy accented his legs and beak as well as the sentiment, flourishes, and middle of the leaves.  Bling for the flowers from my stash as well as the ribbon and raffia.  
Papers are from the Recollections - Bold Basics stack...Love It!!
The flowers are from Recollections as well.  Inking done with Tim Holtz Distress-wild honey & peeled paint.
Home Decor Cartridge: branch and leaves - The flourishes at the top are a cut up branch.  It only cuts in one color so I had to cut it a couple more times to get all the leaves. cut @ 1.5"
Wild Card Cart: Oh Happy Day Tag cut @ 2.5"

Sorry I was so long winded on this one!!  This little bird got me super excited to make this card! :0)
Thanks for stopping by!!
