Addicted to CAS #63: Birds

Addicted to CAS #63: Birds and DT call.

I'd like to be considered for the DT, so that has put a lot more pressure on making this card.
I made two in the end because I don't think my first one (night scene) is really as CAS as it could be as it took a lot of inking to make the background.
And although not white it's still empty space.
I like the moody night scene, just not how it photographed, the blending is really smooth in real life.

So on to the other and the entry for the challenge: Tim Holtz's bird cazy, stamped with Memento and coloured with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.  Sentiment is from Sizzix.
Few matching pearls to help your eye travel across the card and strengthen the green colour boyfriend calls this a zombie
I cut it slightly smaller and the card base and mounte it with foam tape.
