      I printed the image onto smooth white cardstock and colored it with my Spectrum Noir markers (colors listed below).  I fussy cut the image, added some crazing medium to enhance the feathers and some glossy accents to his beak, then glued the image to a doily cut from the Kaisercraft papers.  For the base layer, I cut the Kaisercraft papers to fit my A7 card base, then used my sewing machine to add texture and interest.  I also used the woodgrain embossing folder on the base layer to add more texture, then used the Forest Moss ink to enhance the texture and distress the edges. I sewed a strip of burlap paper at the bottom on the layer, then glued it to the card base.  For dimension, I used some foam dots to pop the focal image in the center.  To finish, I added some burlap flowers, a twine bow, and my sentiment along the burlap strip.
