Christmas Robins

Hi everybody,

Here is my first Christmas card for 2015:

So I took a pale orange base card and layered first a patterned paper that came free with a magazine, and then some wrapping paper that I loved and saved! I stamped the image using my new papermania stamp, onto white card using pretty colour blue ink. I coloured the image using promarkers and then die-cut a lace edging using my new Marianne designs die. This was layered over the wrapping paper. To finish a wooden snowflake and a sentiment were added to opposite corners and two die-cut branches (with another new Marianne creatables die - this time one I won from a magazine just before Christmas) from the wrapping paper again.

This is being entered into the following challenges:
