Creative Card Crew

A fabulous sketch by Nicola this week at Sketch Saturday but sadly I don't think I've done it justice with this rather strange card. I used Magnolia's parrot, masked it and added some vine leaves, both from the Animal collection. The papers are a mixture of Papermania Secret Garden and Dovecraft's Wild Blossom. I cut leaves and attached them to the swirls. I'm finding the light here in Germany is somewhat different and am struggling with photographing cards and this one is far more orangey that it appears here.

Image - Magnolia - Parrot & Hanging leafs
Colouring Medium - Copics
Papers - Papermania - Secret Garden & Dovecraft Wild Blossom
Tools - EK Success corner rounder, Woodware leaf punch, Sizzix swirly die
Embellishments - Ribbon from stash
