Time Out Challenge #17/ Runway Inspired Challenge

I've decided to try and combine a few challenges in one post... I'm not chewing gum, or walking =/

First up, Time Out with Jill and her lovely inspiration for:
 
'Birds of a feather flock together'
I love birds, and am so happy on a dreary Winter's day to catch a gorgeous bright pop of a red Cardinal and know they will stay with me through the season.  I'm definitely following Jill's lead with this:
 
A lovely bit of DP, and "tree tops" cut with a few MFT rectangle dies.  The tree's trunks are also MFT; snowflakes from Wplus9, PTI sentiment and Pure Poppy ink.
 
 
 
Is this not just frighteningly inspiring?
 
I was taken by the horns and immediately thought of that MFT tree trunk again from Lisa Johnson's Out on a Limb set!!  Funny how that brain of mine works, isn't it?
 
A few sprinkles of sequins to mimic the chandeliers;  and red leaves for her gown, and a slip of vellum to represent the partitions behind the model.
The wonderful sentiment is Clearly Besotted... and I can't wait to use the others in the set!
