MMSC80 -- Christmas Bird


Hi everyone!  Here's my take on this week's Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #80 (MMSC80).  I love this week's sketch; it was so easy to work with and came together just like I envisioned... don't you just love when that happens!  My image is one of my favorites from the "priscllastyles" Store; it's called Christmas Bird.  I added touches of glitter to the snow on the branches and used Spica pens to color the berries and bells.  The ribbon was highlighted with a Sakura clear star pen.  IRL, my card sparkles nicely.  Wish my photo picked up the glitter and shine.

I will be  entering this card in the following challenges:
Crazy4Challenges C4C63 -- Create a Christmas card or item.
Gingerloft Challenge 6 - Theme is the great outdoors... animals, trees, snowman... anything outdoor goes.
The Crafty Pad Challenge 97 -- Christmas Sparkle

Have a super day and thanks so much for stopping by!
