You're So Tweet!

Last night was craft night with the girls and after tea and home baked tropical fruit flapjacks we got down to some crafting.  This week we all used the same sketch and came up with totally different cards.  It's such fun to see everyone's take on the same theme.
How sweet is this funky bird?!  He's available as a freebie from Pink Gem Designs if you want to play with him too.  I've coloured him with Promarkers, then added Cotton Candy Stickles to his cheeks and the heart on his tummy, followed by Anita's 3D Gloss and gems once the glitter glue had dried.  A wee blue feather adds a fluffy touch.
The pretty, patterned papers are from a new Papermania Lucy Cromwell stack.  I had to have them as soon as they hit the shops as they are just divine!  Some have glitter accents and others are double sided and the colours are sooo pretty.
I've embossed the green cardstock with a musical notes embossing folder for a bit of texture and I made the bunting with a Stampin' Up punch and some tiny flowers made with an Xcut punch.
A few pink buttons finish it off.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges - 
A Gem of a Challenge - #45 - pink, blue and green.
Anything Goes - #66 - things with wings
Papertake Weekly - anything goes
Lollipop Crafts - #78 - anything goes
