Kitty Bee DT Project - Living Things With Wings

We're halfway through our "Living Things With Wings" challenge at Kitty Bee, so you still have a week to enter.  This time we are sponsored by Crafty Sentiments and Robyn's Fetish, both of whom gave the DT some images to play with, I chose this lovely bird and birdhouse digi from Robyn's Fetish for my DT sample, which this time is a wall hanging.
 I coloured the digi with Promarkers, then made the wall hanging out of thick packaging card, which I covered with Lili of the Valley, Shabby Shack papers, inked with Ground Espresso Distress Ink on the edges.  The sentiment was a free digi, I can't remember where it came from, I matted it up to match the image.  I set eyelets in the corners of the card pieces and threaded blue satin ribbon through to hold the two pieces together and to make the hanging loop, finishing with a bow at the top.
To embellish, I went wild with die cuts!  I made flowers, butterflies, foliage and a feather with Spellbinders, Marianne Sue Wilson and Xcut dies, I also stamped a swirly pattern onto the butterflies.  To finish, I added a real feather and a sprinkling of gems.
