Chocolate Bunny Birdbrain



Good morning! I have a card to share using one of Faith's adorable Birdbrains. I just love the sayings in this set...this particular one speaks to me!

I've used this week's sketch, #167. There's still time to play along; you can get the details here, along with plenty of inspiration from the DT. I've colored the birdbrain with pencils and added a touch of glitter to her eyelids. I went CAS and added some jelly bean paper as an accent.
