Big Bird Flower

Isn't this a cute card?  I saw it somewhere, but I can't remember where.  If anyone knows who first made this card please let me know and I will give credit to that person.
The flower (if you look closely) is made with birds - yes birds - punched with the Big Bird punch.
I used the Elegant Soiree designer paper to punch 4 birds on one side of the paper and 4 birds on the other.
The bottom of the card was stamped using the Inspired by Nature stamp set and Wild Wasabi ink.
The first bird was placed upside down at the top of the card in the centre.  The other birds were attached matching beaks around a circle.  The last bird was tucked under the first bird.
The centre of the flower was made as follows:
1 1/4" marina mist blue, 1" dark gray and 3/4" crumb cake.  A Filigree brad was put in the middle and then attached to the middle of the bird flower.
The stem was made by cutting a strip of Wild Wasabi card stock and tucking it under the flower.  To make the leaf, I folded a piece of Wild Wasabi card stock in half , and punched a small oval punchie at a slight angle.  This was then crimped - again at an angle.
Cute, or what!! Another use for the Big Bird Punch
