A feathered friend

Hi there!

The challenge this week at cas-ualfridays is to create a card featuring a bird/birds.

I tried a couple of things, nothing worked... untill I got up this morning and got the inspiration right on my desktop!
It's a picture from a popular Afrikaans woman's magazine with a quote from Henry van Dyke :

I find it helps if you have a sentiment to build your idea on.

This is what I came up with :

(blogger is blurring my photo ;-(  ... please click on image for a better view)

The birdie is a sticker I bought some time ago. I simply combined it with 2 pearls and a branch with leaves.

You are welcome to use the sentiment I created :
