Inspiration Wednesday Birdbrain

Good Morning :)
Here's my mid-week inspiration card for From The Heart Stamps.
This week i'm using one of my favourite Birdbrains, Birthday Candle Birdbrain...

I've coloured my image with promarkers, including the background, on to which I then used the blender pen to fade out the colour behind this fun, feathery dude. The candle, wax and perspiration all had a brush with a clear Wink of Stella glitter pen, though you can't see this in the photo.
The blue spotty paper is from a digital pack called 'cuckoo 4 u' by Samantha Walker.
Both the chevron and stars papers are from the same digital pack, called 'Superheroes' by Eltendedero on Etsy.
The sentiment on the front of the card is a stamp by Inkadinkado.
I've used a cArt-Us die (ornate frame) for the piece behind the image, which has been given a doodled edge with a white gel pen.

I made the card front to fit onto an easel card this week, and I have made it stand towards the front end of the base...

...which gave me room for the sentiment (one of SIXTEEN that you get for free with this image)...
