Joan's Challenge Red Bird

Good Evening Ladies,
Time got away from me today. So much going on...so much to do!
My card for today is Joan's Challenge Red Bird
You can see and enter the challenge here.... http://www.atjoansgardens.com/2013/10/this-weeks-challenge_24.html
The requirements this week are as follows:
Use Craft color and red
Use a bird
Use layers
Use something that can be purchased at http://www.atjoansgardens.com/
She has so many cool new things in her store!
Here is my card.....
This card started with the Memory Box die Nestled Bird #817. I love this little bird die and have used it over and over again. I purchased this die from Joan. Then came the layers. I picked the Memory Box dies Twiggy Tree #98143 and Heart Canopy #98283. I purchased both of these dies from Joan. The red hearts are created by placing a piece of red cardstock under the craft color layer that is cut with the  heart canopy die. The twiggy tree is cut from dark brown cardstock. The red bird is cut from foil card stock. There is three Corrugate layers from two different DCWV pads. A thin brown ribbon in three strands knotted is layered on top of the corugate. The sentiment and all edges are inked in color box chalk chestnut roan ink.
A close-up of the sentiment.
A close-up of the bird and tree.
Happy Scraps,
Mrs. Swandog
