My sister has been slammed with work lately and did not have time to make a card for her husband so she asked me to make it for her. 

My sister and her husband are parents to five parrots.  He also has recently put out bird feeders and is enjoying seeing all the wild birds that are feeding outside the window.  I thought he might enjoy this image I found at Doodle Pantry.  It's colored with Copic and Whisper Strokes markers.  I have added some extra birds from Paper House.  This sketch is from  

The papers are from Bazzill, Echo Park and some generic.  The baker's twine is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I could not get the bow to stay straight at all.  I made the sentiment.  The button is from a bag of buttons my niece got at school.  She thought I would like them and I do.

What a great card and nice thing you did for your sister. Wow...5 parrots. One time I had 3 cockatiels and it was a handful. I do like birds though and can understand the love. Thank you for joining us in our June Challenge at Doodle Pantry.
