Winter Chickadee

It's time for My Time to Craft's new challenge.  This week the challenge is "Bird Watcher."  This is my DT entry.  The image is Winter Chickadee from Fred She Said.  It is available in black and white or a pre-colored digi.  After how many times I had to redo this, I probably should have used the colored one, but that would have taken the fun out of it for me.  I am also using this as the first of my July entries for Splitcoast Stampers Christmas Card Challenge.

I had a really good time craft shopping.  Lots of sales, and I had some really good coupons, too.  I didn't use any of my new toys yet, although, I did buy a heap of them.  I was able to find a scoreboard.  Hopefully, this week I'll get a chance to use it.  I also bought a beginner quilling kit.  This should be interesting!  I've seen some beautiful quilled flowers on cards lately and I thought I would give it a try. 

The paper is Mirabella from Paper Studio.  I used Copic markers to color.

Copics: C3, C5, E11, E17, E35, G94, G97, R27, W0, W01, W03, W05, W07

I am entering this in the following challenges:
