Birdie Christmas

Hi there and welcome back!  Today's card uses the sketch at Mojo Monday.

I love the tall and skinny card look, so this time I made my card a bit longer (6" x 3.5") to emphasize that look.  I also flipped the sketch 45 degrees to accommodate the main image.  The designer paper is the retired Snow Festival, which I continue to enjoy using due to the bright colors and images, however I am running out of Gumball Green card stock so I don't know how much longer it will remain in my stash.

This cute birdie was stamped in Jet Black Stazon on Whisper White card stock and colored with a Blender Pen.  His body was colored with So Saffron, so the beak had to be a slightly different color.  I used a touch of Crushed Curry and then layered a bit of Pumpkin Pie over top very lightly.

The pompom on top of the stocking cap was decorated with Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details to bring a little sparkle to the card, along with the Rhinestones colored with a Cherry Cobbler Blendability marker.

That's it for today.  Thanks for visiting and of course I would love to hear from you if you have a moment to leave a comment!  It's the cusp of the Labor Day holiday weekend and I hope everyone has a safe and fun time.
