Glitter it up for Christmas

Hi there,

Back again as promised. No further invites to show you yet - taking a little break as I am too tired to think about the layout at the moment. However, I did make a Christmas card instead, and here it is:

 I used a vellum scandi sheet and two patterned papers from a Jennifer Ellory Merry Berry free paper pack. The glitter images were made using double sided adhesive peel-offs, stuck onto a patterned paper that I got in an ATC exchange and sprinkled with red glitter. The edge leaves are actually the insides from the robins wings. This was layered onto mirri card before sticking to the card base. Finally a christmas stamp was added for the sentiment.
This card was based on the Sweet Sketch Wednesday sketch 82
LOC 116 Things with wings
ABC Christmas C for Cute Critters
ABC - challenge A for Animals

Here is the height chart weekly update - I haven't done much this week due to the invites etc - but it is at just under 56 hours.

And I thought I would leave you with my little birdies to make you smile :D
