Birds just like to have fun

I love watching birds.  They are just like humans really with similar behaviours.  In our garden, we have a female blackbird called Dottie (with one white feather on her back)and an old male called Mulder (going grey at the edges), both clearly identifiable by their markings.  We also have two male pheasants - a young and old male - one bright and one faded, not to mention a lot of other birds that all look the same as each other.

For this card I stamped a card for the background, then carefully trimmed it into three layers and matted it onto green card using 3D foam.
