Pheasant picture taken on holidays

This pheasant kept coming to the feeder with his hens and we could watch them from the front window. They would feed and all of a sudden they would just disappear into the brush. We could see nothing or hear nothing. Then they would just casually stroll out of the brush and start to feed again. It reminded me of a title of a book. The book was called "Who Has Seen The Wind" by W.O. Mitchell. He tells the story of a prairie boy's initiation into the mysteries of life, death, God, and the spirit that moves through everything, the wind. I felt that the pheasant had seen the wind. So the whimsical card idea was born.
The card stock is plain white (from The Dollar Store) and the border is Fiskars Threading Water, the sparkly red border is, again, from The Dollar Store. The little frames around the pheasant are from the Cuttlebug corner punch and they are the little bits that would normally get tossed.
Have a Blessed day.
