Happy Birthday Chicken!

It is the start of a new challenge over on Through The Craft Room Door and this is my GDT sample.  This quirky original image is Cowboy Birdie from Doodle Pantry and can purchased here.

Of course I have coloured the image using my Graph It markers;

Hat;  3245, 3250
Hatband; 8280, 9201
Scarf; 8110, 8120, 8280, 8290, 9201
Boots; 3120, 3125, 3140, 3245, 3250
Legs; 2210
Beak; 2105, 2110, 1250, 3190
Chicken; 1140, 1150, 2105

I printed the image twice so I could decoupage he hat and boots.  He is mounted using foam pads on to pale green lined paper from Creata which ahs been cut using my Silhouette.  Creata patterned paper the brown is embossing using Billie's Stones Creata cutting & embossing die.  I highlighted the bricks with brushed corduroy Tim Holtz Distress Ink.  I have rounded the corners with a punch.  The speech bubble is cut from gold Creata lined paper using my Silhouette, the sentiment is a black peel-off.  The whole topper is mounted on to a pre-scored card blank. (I am gradually getting through my huge stash of slightly lesser quality pre-scored cards, they stand up perfectly but are a bit gaudy to use as card bases.)

I would like to enter this in to the following challenges;
