Cardinal Chorus

I have to start by saying that this bird is meant to be a Cardinal - now, as we do not have them here in Australia I am not 100 percent sure if it it, I hunted through my RAK's trying to find one and this was the closest one I had!



Have you guessed that this is for Teapot Tuesday and you can see our inspiration here.  It is also for The Twisted Sister Challenge this week where we are to use leather and lace - I have used the animal skin DP and that gorgeous lace



...and have been inspired by the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge where this week the lovely Silke has given us a sketch to use....so I am feeling pretty good with all of this!  It also qualifies for the Colour Challenge over on SCS.



A layered flower was added to the corner of the image and Kaiser pearls added to the centre.



There you have it - very simple....I am so pleased to have it finished, I don't like being late with challenges!  Thank you for looking and for your lovely comments - you are always so encouraging!!!  It is Saturday evening here and cooling down after a HOT day - I hope your day is a good one!  God bless you!
