Kingfisher in the Rushes

I thought I might branch out a little bit and find some new card challenges to enter. I'm so happy I found the Just Inspirational Challenges. They give you an inspiration and ask that you use an image from this week's sponsor when making your creation.    Delicious Doodles is the sponsor and when I saw the colors of the inspiration photo, I immediately knew I wanted to use the Kingfisher image from Delicious Doodles. To me, it seemed to be a masculine theme and the Kingfisher in the Rushes makes a perfect card for a male.

This is the inspiration. We can use the inspiration any way we want to: colors, shape, theme, image. I chose the sepia color scheme.

Here is my card and the recipe is below it:
