I wanted to create something that wasn't a Christmas card but still had a little bit of winter in it. I think I found the a good balance by adding a slight hint of snow in the spruce branches and extra pine boughs around my oval frames. I used my stamping mat and a stylus to really give this bird dimension and backed it with foam tape so it wouldn't flatten out.
I used some of my favorite polka dot organdy ribbon to match the polka dots I doodled around the edges of the frames and matting. This card actually had enough polka dots to even make my heart content. I even added polka dots to the inside of the card.
I have also entered this card in the Our Daily Bread Shining Light Challenge Here.
I'm honored to have been chosen for the Our Daily Bread Shining Light Award for this card
