CHRISTMAS CARD FOR 3 CHALLENGES

I started out to design this card for Merry Monday's challenge (bird) and then realized I could also use it for Curtain Call (aqua and lime green) and Paper Players (fancy).

I adhered the silver dot vellum to white cardstock and die cut the tag.  Die cut the bird from silver paper and covered it with glossy accents to give it some shine.  The branch and sentiment are cut from glitter paper.  I colored the silk ribbon with a copic marker. 

Supplies: HA sentiment, MFT tag, MB bird & branch dies; May Arts silk ribbon; DCWV and SU glitter paper and Neenah metallic cs.

Thanks for stopping by and your kind comments.  This may be my last post for the year as I leave for London next Sunday to spend Christmas with my family there.  May you have a peaceful Christmas and a blessed New Year.  Betty

  12. Love this card. And because of the silver, it is awesome for Christmas. We took a long walk , in our nearby forest, on Christmas, and saw all kind of birds. We admired the beautiful december light on the branches. We even got some sun! This morning when I got up, guess what....it was snowing! just after Christmas :). Hope you have a wonderful time in Londen. Must be great to be there on Christmas! Greetings from Holland!
