Circumstantially Hopeful - Not Pilin' on Patterned Paper

The theme this month at Pile It On is Feathers/Scales and/or No Patterned Paper. The only real rule is to be inspired by more than one papercrafting challenge. We're sponsored by Ike's Art. Aside from her always-creative Ike's World Challenges, she also hosts a monthly Cat-themed challenge, Show Us Your Pussies; I used one of her SYUP freebies, along with this bird from an Amy Smyth/Inkadinkado clear stamp set, to create this hopefully-humorous card!
The background is created with a piece of corrugated cardboard that comes with sandwiches at Panera. I colored it with Copic markers and a blue gen pen, and then added some blue glitter embossing powder. It was loads of fun to make, and I really like the texture.
