{Embellish Magazine} color challenge with birds

The colors for the {Embellish Magazine}challenge are pink, brown, and green, and we are to incorporate birds.





After I finished my card, and as I was preparing to make this post, I read on the challenge that the winners would have their "hot" projects highlighted.   That made me giggle; hot this isn't, but it made me happy while making it......still humming that lovely old tune.  I used a favorite Inkadinkado bird and a Denami note stamp, and my sentiment is computer generated using the English calligraphy script font, found here.  The background paper has birds and branches in it.
