It's Your Day

I had fun with this card, although my coloring “skills” are probably best described as attempts . . .

While not  very obvious in the picture, five of the birds have been cut five times with the Memory Box Resting Birds die, stacked and glued together, and then pop-dotted for just a smidge more dimension.  This may sound excessive, but when working with such small images that are black in color and placed against a mostly dark surface, extraordinary measures are often called for . . .
