Blue Bird of Xmas

Hi everyone Today's card was inspired by the song "Put your records on" as the opening line is ...

Three little birds sat on my window and they told me not to worry.

Anyway I found my favourite bird out a set of three from The Greeting Farms Vintage birds set, looked up the bluebird and coloured him in. I saw a couple of pictures with snow and I had some left over Designer Paper and silver card from another xmas card so I came up with today's card.

For the wreath I coloured the flowers from SU Artful Asian set with white gel pen, then cut them out and stuck them around a scollap spellbinder die cut. I used the sentiment from a SU stamp set but I can't remember the name.

I have entered this card in the following challenges:

Colour Create Challenge - ROBIN EGG BLUE, SEA FOAM GREEN and CREAM
Crazy 4 Challenges - Circles
Speedy the Cat and Friends - Circles
Stampin Royalty - Designer paper
Wild Orchids Challenge - Blue Christmas.
Mad for markers - non traditional colours xmas cards

See you around
