Happy Birthday (Parrot)

I think I'm on a roll with the sketch from  Papercraftplanet  this week! It's so simple for cards when you're in a hurry. Just as well I had coloured some of my digis a while ago when I was trying out some of my new colours of Promarkers. I think I'll try to keep a stock in future..
The image is Parrot, one of a series of birds I drew a while ago and I use these quite a lot on cards for men. This card is for a lovely gentleman who is 91 today and has been a great support lately while we have had various illnesses in the family.
The paper is actually from a Christmas range but I just love the colour and thought it suited the parrot.I've used Glossy Accents on the beak but it is not showing up too well in the photo.
I'm entering the Passion for Promarkers challenge AGAIN with this one!!
