Christmas Birds

Just a quick post today, as I'm expecting dinner guests today and am going around like crazy cleaning the house and prepping dinner. But there's always time for a quick Christmas card, isn't there?

The colour inspiration for this card was the snowflake paper I used for the background. I coloured the Bugaboo Winter Bird Trio using Copics and matted onto blue cardstock. I made the snowflake embellishments by die cutting snowflakes from blue cardstock and then triple embossing them using clear and holographic embossing powder. I printed the sentiments and matted onto blue cardstock. 

I'm entering the card in the following challenges:
Sweet Stampin' Christmas - Snowflakes
Jingle Belles - Not a Creature was stirring (feature a Creature)
Completely Christmas - Anything goes with added twist: Add a sentiment
