Sparkling bird

Happy Christmas week everyone - hope you're all managing to stay sane!!

This is a Christmas card using non-Christmas colours. I took inspiration for the colours from this beautiful May arts ribbon and used Always Artichoke and Really Rust Cardstock to match it.

I adore this Inkadinkadoo bird - I embossed it with some beautiful copper embossing powder - it's sooo sparkely IRL! I cut birdie out with labels dies, sewed around the edges of the card and finished up with some matching dew drops.

I've been visiting blogs quickly but haven't had time to leave comments I'm afraid. I'm loving seeing everyone's festive creations though! Thanks for visiting and enjoy the run-up to the big day!
