Christmas Love Birds

Hello to Everyone~~~
Challenges Entered:

WOJ #53 ~~~ Use Red, cream and one other color
MMSC ~~~~ follow sketch at left
Simon Says ~~~ All that sparkles!! Used glitzy ribbon, shiny red rhinestones and frosted lace stickles on leaves and birds wings
SSHP #05 ~~~ In so many words!! Used script embossing on dp and Rubbernecker stamp saying-- Wishing you Peace, Joy, Love and Laughter.
Stamp something ~~~ Cute and fuzzy somethings!! Oh those lovely winter snow birds!!
SSCC #11 ~~~ Deuteronomy 31:8 "The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged." (NIV) Make something to encourage or remind a friend that God is with them. I focused on God's creation of animals (Birds) and seasons to remind us of his gifts of peace, joy, love and laughter he brings to each and everyone of us daily!!!

I used the WOJ stamp ( winter love birds) Oh so very cute~~~aren't they!!! Stamped them onto white cardstock and colored with copics. Then used dobbers to add soft blue sky and little red to birds breasts ( slightly noticeable in image below). Restamped image and cut out birds and popped them up. Added liquid applique to give a snowy look on branch and birds. Added frosted lace stickles to pine leaves and top of birds wings for sparkle!! Used K & Company DP (Christmas Cheer) and embossed with script CB folder. Sentiments are from Rubbernecker snowflake & Stardust set. Detailed with embellies of green tulle (first time ever used tulle on a card), glitzy~~sparkly red and silver ribbon with buckle and shiny red rhinestones!!

Close ups of these cutie pies and how sparkly they are!!! You can kinda see the red on birds breasts here :D

Dimensional View.

God Bless

Lovely, lovely card. Love those birdies. They are so cute and they must have been snuggling a long long time for snow to be on them. Love all your colors and embellishments. The MMDesign Team thanks you for playing with us this week.
