A Pleasant Pheasant

I recently got my new Stampin' Up Stamp set, Autumn Days, and I just love it! I stamped the grasses directly onto a white card base with Stampin' Up Old Olive, stamping more than once before reinking to get a feeling of depth. The pheasant was coloured with Whispers pens and the sentiment (Amy R Stamps) with Old Olive.  These were matted onto a piece of burgundy card and a bit of SU ribbon tied round.  
I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:
A Spoon Full of Sugar - All Creatures Great and Small
Allsorts - Anything but a square
Daring Cardmakers - Draw a bird (I can't draw birds but I did colour direct to the stamp with pens to make it look real)
The Secret Crafter Challenge - Our Feathered Friends
