Festive Robins

Hi there 🙂 It’s time for another Christmas card! I know I’m still going to be in a rush come holiday season, but every little card made early makes the rush not so frantic! I used a sweet image from Ike’s Art, whose store closed after the creator, Sue, sadly passed away 🙁 I colored the robins with my Copics, then masked it off, so I could sponge some clouds in the background with my Distress Inks. I then added a touch of sparkle to the snow on the leaves and branches, and added a stamped and embossed sentiment.

I kept the layout of the card fairly simple, using 2 coordinating printed papers, and some dark brown matting. To match the gold of the embossing, I cut some thin strips of gold paper and placed them at an angle on opposite corners of the image, then die cut a bow from the same paper to add to one of the strips. A quick finishing touch was some gold ball embellishments.

I’d like to enter this in the following:
