Glitter bird card

I'm trying to enter at least one challenge a week this year.  This one goes into 4.  Not bad for one card.  I know some people manage to make one card fit like 8-10 challenges but I'm quite pleased with 4. 

The pix aren't great but there's no natural light today to speak of.

There's not much difference between the shots but the first is a bit more true color-wise while the second allows you to see the bird a bit better.

Glitterbabe's Challenge 27: The bird is a Glitterbabe image (I hope it's ok that I cut the stars off from around the bird.  I originally had them but a snafu required their removal.)  The bird is 100% glittered (except the legs) and the dk. blue paper actually has a fine sparkle to it.  I'd love to tell you what paper it is but I bought it at a vendor night from a woman who had repackaged everything and was just selling unlabeled packs of this stuff.  Wish I'd gotten more!  I also glittered the purple flower brad.

Moxie Fab's Jewel Tones color challenge.  Use nothing but these four colors.  While I don't have any Bazzil paper, I think I matched pretty closely.  This challenge is part of the celebration around Papercrafts "Colors Inspiration for Card Makers" release.
