Stamptacular #120 Animal Antics - Birds are animals too!

This week at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge we are sponsored by The Stamping Boutique who are offering one lucky winner a choice of 5 digis but in order to win, you will need to enter this week's "Animal Antics" challenge and create a card or project with some sort of animal(s) on it!   Oh…and don’t forget to stamp! After all, we don’t call this STAMPtacular for nothing!
I'm working on the basis that birdies are animals too and boy did I struggle with my card.  I very, very rarely make a card unless it is for someone in particular - even my challenge cards are nearly always earmarked for an individual - this one wasn't for someone I had in mind and I just couldn't seem to make it.  It's such a cute image (courtesy of the Stamping Boutique) - I loved all the pretty bird houses and think it will make a nice house warming card. I coloured it with Copics and Promarkers and chose this pretty Jack and Jill paper but I just don't think it works. 
I hope I have better luck with the card for next week's challenge.  That one is also not currently earmarked and I'm already struggling with it.  But one thing at a time.  My teamies seem to have had no trouble at all this week and there's lots of lovely inspiration on our site.  Why not have a go and play along.
I'm entering my card into Paperplay this week who want to see "something with wings"

I know you make your cards with people in mind, but I can't believe you struggled with this. It's so pretty. I love that you've combined different images. I hope you don't give yourself such a hard time next week! ;)

Boy are you ever WRONG! This card not only works, it is awesome. I love it Leslie. Chill out GF, this is precious! LOL

Don't know what you are talking about? The card is so sweet! The paper complements the image so well! I wouldn't have been able to use the paper at all I guess... (not knowing what to do with it more than anything else)
Love, Alex
