Everything Wendy Vecchi - yahoo challenge

It has been a few weeks since I found time to enter this fab challenge hosted by Lori for our Everything Wendy Vecchi yahoo group and this week she has set us a theme of "use a bird" based on Wendy's 2nd book, page 38 - but you don't need the book to play!  You must use at least one Studio 490 stamp and the challenge theme.

So, I took a piece of Maya Road chip, wild honey distress stain and ink, some Heirloom Gold perfect pearl spray and a whole heap of Wendy stamps. (The flower is new, it's just come to live with me....I told you on WOYWW there was some stash on it's way.. )

I covered the bird with some patterned paper (by memorybox) and made an extra wing (two actually, after I forgot the bird was reversed cos of covering it with the paper....)   I was going to use a piece of ball chain (the bits that come with the chip pieces) but I couldn't get it to fasten, so used a hitch fastener to hold the philosophy tag in place instead.

Sorry about the photo, it's dark so I couldn't turn the flash off and it's gone a bit glary!
