Finally... the Last Christmas Card

Well here it is just 3 days to go and I've finished my christmas cards - breathing a big sigh of relief!!

For this I've used the Little Claire 'birdhouse garden' stamp coloured up with Promarkers and touches of white Sakura pen for the 'snow'. I edged the image with gold caligrapher pen and used sticky pads to stick it to the card. The background paper is Raspberry Road Designs 'christmas collection' and I used Mariiane Creatables LR0137 to cut the bird on the branch. Then just a gold peel-off sentiment to finish.

I'm afraid the photo is a bit poor as the light is not so good here today.

I shall enter this in the following challenges
Penny Black and More challenge 'It's Your Choice'
Totally Gorjuss challenge 'Easy Does It'
The Paper Shelter challenge 'Anything Goes'
Passion For Promarkers challenge 'Include the word Happy in your sentiment' (my 2nd entry)
Christmas at Sweet Stampin' challenge 'Anything Goes' (my 2nd entry)
Songbird challenge 'Merry Christmas Everybody' (my 2nd entry)
Elke Kaart Een Feestje challenge 'Anything Goes' (my 2nd entry)
Simon Says Stamp challenge 'Merry Christmas' (my 2nd entry)
Natalie and Amy's challenge 'Winter Wishes' (my 2nd entry)

Thanks for stopping by and Merry Christmas to you all xx
