A Robin's Christmas

Good morning, everyone.  I hope you are enjoying the holidays.  Here is a last-minute Christmas card I made.   This beautiful image is called A Robin's Christmas and I won it from Delicious Doodles last week (thank you, Teri) - it's so pretty I couldn't wait to use it.

I coloured parts of the image with my Prismacolor pencils and added white glitter all over the snow.  The sentiment is a clear stamp from Penny Black. The star charm is from Stamp and Create.  The green glitter ribbon is from Dollarama and the fiber is from Palette Yarns.  I embossed the white panel with Cuttlebug Snowflakes.  I followed this sketch from MFP Speedy TV:

Oh Kitty, how stunning is this Christmas card .......Green and White with just enough touches of red to ensure that the robin's visit brings a big smile for the 'feel good' factor on a chilly winter day. I love the addition of the fibre with the lovely star charm pretty and so tactile. Good luck in our extended challenge. Ingrid xx ( OSAAT Team )
