Watch the birdie!

Morning everyone...
The rain has arrived here,
just in time for the start
of the Great Yorkshire Show!
The roads near me will be chocka-block,
so I will be staying indoors most of the week.

This is my second Christmas card this year -
I'm building momentum slowly... lol**

I used a smaller card base than usual,
12cm x 12cm,
but made it slightly bigger, by adding the nestie circle at the top.
The stamp is a digital Whimsy,
3D'd and coloured with Copics, stickles glitter
and some glossy accents on the stars.
I sponged the area around the stamp in blue chalk,
but the camera doesn't pick this up very well.

I would like to enter my card for this fortnight's
Magical Crafts Challenge,
where the theme is 'Christmas in July'.
It's my fist time joining in at Magical
and if you haven't come across their blog before,
head on over there
and check out the fabulous DT work.

Stamp - Whimsy Digital - Stars and Stripes Dove.
Design Paper - My Mind's Eye - Signature Christmas
Letter Stamps - MSE Adrienne's
Blooms and leaves XCut Punch
Buttons and adhesive pearls from my stash.
