Try Stampin' On Tuesday

I need to replenish my card supply with some "thank you" sentiments, so decided to play along with the sketch for the current Try Stampin' On Tuesday challenge. I had the Dainty Deliveries Frame die cut from Simply Chartreuse paper layered over the same color in my leftover stash and never used it because I didn't get the edges even when I went to glue them together. I had to come up with Plan B which was to die cut the layers with a Torn Edges die. I used a branch instead of a horizontal banner and opted for a bird instead of the oval shape in the sketch.

The bird was die cut from white card stock then, the different parts were color blended using brushes. I've learned the hard way that it works best to adhere the upper wing section (green in this case) first, then add the belly and the two small pieces (yellow neck triangle and small section of his other wing).  

I kept it simple and opted for no flowers so that it would fit for a male recipient.
