Very CAS Bird Card

Wanted to play in the June Mix It Up Challenge where we are to combine Essentials by Ellen with Technique Tuesday products. So I dug out those fun chickadees and made this very CAS card. It took me, of course, much longer to make than it looks like... Did some paper piecing, watercoloring the shadow, added some washi tape, and die cute a speech bubble for the sentiment (which is from the Mondo Magnolia set).

Stamps: Technique Tuesdays (bird), Essentials by Ellen (sentiment)
Die: Lawn Fawn (speech bubble)

My third choice is either fussy cutting (the bird body), paper piecing, and/or washi tape (the last two are not on the list...)
