A Day for Daisies - Shades of Blue

I found another awesome challenge last night.  This challenge is for A Day for Daisies.  They a new digi release called Blue Birdie.  I love birds.  They offer this free digi to play along with their challenge - the theme is shades of blue/blue birds.  The challenge is open until March 29th.  This is what I came up with today.
Blues and greens are favorite colors, so it gave me a chance to use this brand new designer paper from BoBunny called the Alora collection.  All 3 patterned papers used for this card are from the Alora collection.  The cardstock is Bazzill Whirlpool and Parakeet - two of my favorite colors. 

The bird is colored with Copic markers - BG70, BG72, BG75, YG03, YG11, YG13, YG23, YG91, E35, E37, E47, R20.  The background is chalk.
