Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge--Easel Card with a Bird/Animal

It's Thursday and that means it is time for the Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge.  The super talented Debbie has chosen for us to create an easel card and include a bird or animal.  Mo has so many beautiful images that include animals but I included my animal in a little different way.  Imagine that. me be different LOL :

I love the On the Pot kids and had to figure out a way to use one for this challenge so decided this little cutie would be talking to the bird. It fits the challenge so it works,...right.   That's my story... Work with me here!!!  This little cutie  was colored with copic markers and sponged with distressed ink and mounted on pink and black cs.  The pink was left longer so I could add the black band and pink velvet rick rack.
The black and white plaid dp is digi dp from Jak Heath, she has some awesome dp on her website.
The roses were hand made and the sentiment, which I couldn't resist for this image, was computer generated and punched with SU punches.
Funny thing about my card.  I knew the image I wanted to use, had it all colored, knew it had to have a bird or animal, made the card, photographed it, and added it to the group file just in time before I had to go to work and Oh Crap...(pun intended)...I forgot the easel part.  Sent email I would fix the card and repost my picture that night so this is the-- fits the challenge card :)
Be sure to stop by to see what the rest of the DT has, they have created some awesome Easel cards...WOW....Also be sure to stop by the store.  Mo has been super busy creating new images since she got her book done ...Yeah MO!!!

Thanks for stopping by and have  a great day.

Hugs,
Cathy

Cathy this is sooooo cute, reminds me of my youngest daughter when she was little, she used to sit on the loo for ages!! Talking away to herself, used to say to her " who you talking to in there Helen " to which the reply was always " no one!!"... Lol.
Anyway I digress, your card is just adorable and as always beautiful colour work, that DP is lush!!.
