Christmas Robin

It's the 25th and Rudolph Day is here again. I've gone for a CAS design on a 7 inch square card blank - which I managed to get from Hobbycraft thanks to Di (of the Playground) putting me on the right track. I've used my new Penny Black 'pretty perch' robin stamp which I coloured with Promarkers and added Stickles and Sakura clear glaze - although neither show up very well in the photo. I die cut the top with Memory Box 'grand merry christmas' and matted onto red card before sticking to the card blank.

I shall enter this in the following challenges

April Rudolph Days challenge 'christmas'

Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas challenge 'use a sentiment'

Sparkles Christmas challenge 'CAS christmas'

Time Out challenge 'celebration + option die cutting / fussy cutting'

HLS Christmas challenge 'die cuts'

Wow!!!! This is gorgeous!!! Bravo!
What do you mean a 7 inch square card? And you can get it at Hobby Lobby? I really love your card and it doesn't look that big - I would say it is a perfect size for your design.
Your coloring is beautiful!!
