Design: an ATC

This ATC started when I found the image of the bird in a cigar box. I used a dictionary page for the background and added a stamped bird over the word "Design." The problem came when I tried to add something in the upper right. After several rejects, I decided on the N from a magazine, but never quite got the color to match the blue in the box, even though I kept adding more and more transparent layers. What I really needed was a cigar band, but I couldn't find one.
