Christmas Robin

I'm here today with a quick make christmas card. I love robins and this stamp called 'pretty perch' from Penny Black is my all time favourite. I coloured it with Promarkers, chalked the sky and added Stickles to the snow. The card base, image and matting layer from silver mirricard were all cut with QuicKutz nesting dies and to finish I added a sentiment from Uniko 'most wonderful' stamp set.

This one is a bit darker but I think it shows the 'glisten' in the snow better

I have quite a few challenges for this one so here goes

Penny Black and More challenge 'use your favourite stamp'
Stamping Sensations challenge 'animal magic'
Country View challenge 'time challenge 30 minutes or under'
Winter Wonderland challenge 'anything goes christmas - a tribute to Eileen'

I absolutely love this card Andrea. The little robin is gorgeous. Robins and snowmen are my favourite images on Christmas cards and I love your glistening snow. The shape of the card and the matting look lovely. A really super card! Barbxx

Thanks for that second photo as that glistening snow is so pretty. And often very hard to catch the glimmer in the photos!
This is such a pretty card. I love the pretty scene of the bird on the clay pot...

I can well understand this being a favourite stamp Andrea and your cards are both stunners, beautifully coloured and a great choice of card base as the shape complements the image so well.

Many thanks for sharing with us at Stamping Sensations and Penny Black and More challenges.

Gorgeous card depicting your robin. I like how you have coloured the pot in. I'm finding this awful dull weather is a pain to get any decent pictures. Can see the lovely sparkle of the snow on your last picture. hugs Mrs A.
