Bird Gift

Hello, everyone.  A warm welcome to my newest followers.  Today I am sharing another Christmas card.  The image is called Yule Sparrow from Opal Manor, and it's a freebie that's still available here.  There's a Yule Challenge going on at Opal Manor but the challenge is "no colour red."  Come join me - there are plenty of freebies on their site to choose from.

I coloured the image with my Prismacolor pencils and added Stickles on the white part of his little hat.  This is the first time I have used my new Memory Box Snowflake Corner, which was given to me by my good friend Annie - thank you, my friend.  The Resting Birds are from Memory Box, and I used my Nellie's Multiframes Square to make the fishtail and tiny Rectangle to make the little sentiment tag.  The embossing folders are both from Couture Creations - Sugarplum Ball and A Songbird's Poinsettia.  The sentiment word "joy" is from Studio G.  The ribbon, gems, and snowflake are from Dollarama.  I used a sketch from i {heart} sketches - this is the first time I've played along there.


I would like to enter the following challenges:
  1. Charisma Cardz Christmas 3E #1 C10
  2. Creative Craft Challenges Non-traditional Christmas Colours 3E #2
  3. From the Heart Stamps I {heart} Sketches Sketch #44 (see above) 1E

HA! this is just plain mean! I typed in my comment and then it disappeared! :-) Hi, Kitty! Love this adorable little birdie - so sweet - I've never seen this image before and love it. Your bright green really makes your card so festive against the deep, rich browns. Cute little green birdies at the bottom, too. I would not have thought of doing that. Wonderful design, Miss KT! hugs, de
