Christmas Birds

I came across another Lili of the Valley Art Pad image whilst tidying my snippets drawer - perfect for this quick Christmas card.

I attached a piece of red holly paper to the front of the card blank, leaving a small border around the edge.  I used the curved border die to cut and emboss a fancy edge along the right side of the precoloured image and then trimmed the panel on the other edges so it was slightly smaller than the backing paper.  I stamped the sentiment in the top corner before attaching the panel to the card front.

To make this card I used:
     6" x 4" white matt card blank
     Lili of the Valley 'Winter Wonderland' Art Pad
     Clearly Besotted 'Rockin' Robin' sentiment stamp
     Versafine Crimson Red ink
     Spellbinders Borderabilities 'Curved Borders Die'
     Kars tan embossing mat
     Wild Rose Studio 'Annabelle's Christmas' paper pad

I am entering the following challenges:
     ABC Christmas Challenge - Anything Goes   
     Cutie Pie Challenge - Cute, Clean and Simple  
     Winter Wonderland - Little Friends

This LOTV image looks wonderful against the red holly background and gives great contrast, and the curved loopy pierced edge is so pretty Kath. x
