Little Robin Redbreast

Today I'm showing you a really simple Christmas card.
I did intend to put a bow above the image, which is why it's not quite central, but it just didn't look right.



From all the Christmas cards I make, I usually pick 3 or 4 designs that I like the most and then make more of those. 
I think this CAS style is a winner, it's quick and easy to make and flat enough to cost me less to post!!    ;-)

The sparkle is gorgeous IRL, just so difficult to photograph.

Challenges.
