One card two challenges with this adorable digi from Hambo Stamps

First this card is for this week's Hambo Hoedown #83.....ZIG ONE WAY AND ZAG THE OTHER (CHEVRONS)
I did not have any Chevron dies or papers I wanted to use so I used these colorful dp's and made my own Chevron border using a 1 1/4" corner punch. First I made the image png in Adobe Photoshop Elements so I could overlap my image and sentiment. I worked in Publisher using the cropping tool to break the image and sentiment apart and place where I wanted. I printed a second bird, colored, cut out and popped up.
Second, this card is for today's Free For All Challenge #135...THE EYES HAVE IT (GOOGLIE EYES)
I took one tiny googley eye and placed over the two eyes on the image. I love how he looks like he is looking at the sentiment. I would never have thought of doing this if I was not inspired by this challenge to use googley eyes today.
