Bird’s Best Buddy

Good morning!! Another week has rolled by, and it’s time for another challenge at C.R.A.F.T.  It’s once again time for our monthly theme of Christmas, and our generous sponsor is Pink Gem Designs.

2 “SINGLE” digi images OR 2 “Card Topper Kits of the winners choice.

It’s so hard to choose from the sweet images in this shop, but I chose Chilly With Birdhouse for my card.  I colored him up with my Prismacolor pencils, then set to arranging the card, following this sketch at The Sketchy Challenges as inspiration

I dove into my Christmas papers, to use up some scraps that I’ve accumulated.  I loved the look of the traditional Christmas colors with this guy, and, in real life, the green in the paper is almost identical to the green of his jacket….the tricks of photography, sigh.  I had a piece of wide red ribbon, which I added a snowflake button to, to finish the card off 🙂
