Merry Monday #182 - Christmas Birds

Hi Friends,
This week it's Kathy's turn to be Hostess and she is challenging us to Use a Bird on our Christmas cards.  I dry embossed the background with Sizzix's Brick Wall embossing folder and die cut the birds and leaves, cutting the large bird image out three times to get the different pieces. I finished off by adding pearls and the sentiment.

Stamps: Simon Says Stamps - Holiday Hellos SSS101365, Happy SSS101328
Card: Whisper White, Wild Wasabi, Real Red, Gold Foil
Ink: Real Red
Finishing Touches: Gold and White Pearls
Cool Tools: Big Shot, Papertrey Ink Songbirds Dies, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Sizzix Brick Wall E/Folder, Dble Sided Tape, Dimensionals, 2 Way Glue Pen, Fine Tip Glue Pen
Lovely to have you visit.
