Look At You, Cockatoo!

Hello there 🙂  Ever have one of those days when you want to just scream??  My internet has been so sporadic yesterday and today that I could do just that!!!  Hopefully, it cooperates for long enough so I can get this post up!!!  I was inspired by the latest challenge at Make It Crafty when making this card, as well as a friends beloved pet bird, Caesar 🙂  I used the amazing Cockatoo digi stamp from Make It Crafty as the focal point of my project.  I was lucky that Caesar sat and posed for a picture, so I could study how his feathers fell, lol!  After coloring the image with my Copics, I fussy cut it out.  I was sure that I had a leaf background die, but my memory was playing tricks on me, so luckily, I had the leaf print DP, that worked almost as well for the tropical feel I was going for.  I dug around and finally came up with some odd blooms that I layered up to resemble hibiscus, for the bird to peeking out from.  I die cut a frame from foil CS (still so difficult to photograph this stuff, even when it’s such a small bit of the card!), some leaves, and a birthday sentiment…..for Caesar’s mom, of course!!!

I’d like to enter this in the following:
