Too fun to waste

Today's card features a recycled/upcycled image from a store-bought Christmas card I received. The bird in the hat cracks me up (and there's another image cut for the same card waiting for its upcycling).

The birds are mounted on a panel embossed with a sheet music folder, and I'm keeping it CAS to keep the focus on those birds.

This card isi for these challenges:
