Deck the Halls Birdbrain

Hello, everyone!  I'm back!  My mojo is slowly returning and today I have a card to share. Before I get started, I would like to welcome my newest follower - Maarit N. Perrson - so happy to have you here!

My card features the November Stamp of the Month from From the Heart Stamps called Deck the Halls Birdbrain. This is a progressive challenge so I received this image for free because I participated last month. I coloured the image with Prismacolor pencils and added glitter along the snow.


I followed this week's sketch at i {heart} sketches:

Sketch128 

I die-cut the image into a circle shape, mounted it on a red circle, and popped it up with foam tape. I wanted the circle to look like an ornament, so I made a hanger by adhering gold washi tape to a small piece of white cardstock and then die-cut the ornament hanger shape (Elizabeth Craft).  Then I tied some bakers' twine to the hanger. For the base of the card, I followed the sketch and made a pattern with washi tape on strips of green cardstock and layered onto a red panel.  I stamped the sentiment from Sugar Pea Designs - Sweet Treats and finished off the card with a few red sequins.

I would like to join the following challenges:
  1. Beccy's Place A Month of Holiday Cards - Day 25 - Use a freebie (the image was free) UE
  2. From the Heart Stamps Stamp of the Month
  3. From the Heart Stamps i {heart} sketches See sketch above
  4. Jennifer Grace's Frosty Festivities - Be Inspired I was inspired to cut the ornament top from washi-tape-covered cardstock by Jennifer's post here.  
  5. Papertake Weekly Take Your Pick (I used red and green, glitter, and bauble shape) 1/5
  6. Pixie's Snippet Playground  The red, green, and white cardstock were all snippets! 1/3

  5. Hi Kitty, so happy to read you! Your mojo has produced a clever design! :D Love your use of washi tapes, as always you have made a great work with them! These colours are happy and festive and the image made me smile, it's very fun and cute! Good idea that of the gold hanger with a washi and the twine gives some 3D look !

  27. Your card is so colourful and fun Kitty, I love that little bird running around with it's wings full of baubles... I've felt like that a few times myself! I really like the way you did the background with the strips of washi tape on cardstock, and I also like the little sentiment you added. Fabulous!
