CAS(E) this Sketch #248 - have a tweet birthday

I made this card for this week's challenge at CAS(E) this Sketch.

Here's the sketch by Chrissy:

I thought the banner tail angle was perfect for the shape of the bird. I extended the twig by adding a thin dark brown strip.

I colored the bird with Zig brush markers and heat-embossed the sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by!
