Crafty Catz - Seeing Spots

This card is for Crafty Catz Challenge #140 - Spots.  I couldn't fins a suitable spotted paper 
to go with this image so I added spots with a Sizzix embossing folder. 

The sponsor this week is Floppy Latte Digital Designs 


I visited their website this past week and this image caught my eye right away.  Fortunately, it ended up being one of the digis they provided the design team for this challenge.  I lucked out.  Anyways, I usually research animals and birds before I color them so I can do so accurately.  This time I was unable to research because I have no idea whatsoever what type of bird this is.  So I winged it and came up with my own color scheme.  Hopefully, I'm not too far off.

The paper is Fairy Flora by Prima.  I used a Martha Stewart punch for the edging.  
Flowers are from my stash. 

Copics:  BG0000, BG000, BG05, BG10, BG11, BG13, BG15, BG18, 100, C2,
 E35, G20, G21, G24, R11, R20, R22, Y13, Y17
