Toucan

** Looking for the Stampin Sisters in Christ Challenge Card? Scroll down.... there it is!**
 Wasn't there a cereal that used the toucan as it's symbol? I had such fun coloring him! I researched on the computer what their colors should be and noticed that with the beak, anything goes! The body was supposed to be all black but I need more practice coloring with blacks so I used dark grays instead. I colored the toucan twice and cut one up so that he pops up a bit and also colored and cut out the flowers. I usually shy away from square cards because I have no envelopes for these cards - another thing to learn!

This card was made for 5 challenges, first is for StampTV inspiration challenge, the second is for CardPatterns72, the third is for the CopicCreations31 to color a bird, and using a punch (square punches) for Speedy the Cat challenge 11 finally it was for the DutchDare Challenge to use flowers. Have a terrifically wonderful day and leave a comment if you have a moment, hey you could even follow me by clicking on the "follow" link on the right.
