Holy Cluck...Another Bird-day?

OHey guys!  Today I have a card to share with you that I am entering over at Catch The Bug for the weekly challenge.  This week is a recipe challenge that requires you to use: 3 layers, the color orange, ribbon and a bird image.  

I used the Cricut Cuttlebug Chicken Wire embossing folder to emboss my More Mustard (SU) base layer.  The image, chickz - holy cluck another bird day is of course from Bugaboo Stamps. I used Darice Rectangle dies to die-cut the image.  The sentiment came with the image and was die-cut using The Stamps of Life Stitched Rectangle Dies.  The image was layered on to Kraft Gray Recollections cardstock that matches the card base.  The sentiment was layered on to More Mustard cardstock from Stampin' Up.  The image was colored using Spectrum Noir Markers.  I did use Spectrum Noir Sparkle in Clear Coat and Crystal Effects from Stampin' Up for a little sparkle and shine :)  The ribbon is from Dollar Tree.  The three metal embellishments were from my stash, so I am unsure of the manufacturer.  Ironically, they are something I never thought I would use.  I kept them "just in case" there was a good time to use them.  This was that time :). It feels so good to use something you have had for so long.  

As always, thanks for stopping by to see my creation.  Until next time, happy crafting :)
