Breakin' out the bird

Maybe not the way you think.  I actually made a bunch of cards several years ago and apparently cut a few pieces short.  So while I had already colored my stamped image, I didn't have the background pieces to go with him.  Since I had enough of the cards, I just hung onto these 2 colored bird bits.  Did I mention it was several years ago?  The bird's been around a while.  I was just about to stamp the bird again for this card when I remembered the images I had colored... and I found them quickly (really, sometimes I am truly organized) and yahoo!  They work well with what I had put together so this card came together fast fast fast!  Yay!  Bonus!
