Hello Robin

Not had as much time for crafting as I'd like recently - lots of meetings at work and much job uncertainty so it was nice to be able to have a couple of hours today to craft and destress. Heres another Christmas card - how the pile is growing!
This is a stamp from Lili of the Valley. I coloured it using twinkling H2Os and then added glamour dust to the girls fur for some Christmas glitz. Love the way she and the Robin appear to be talking.
This is the finished card. I used the holly backing paper to contrast with the holly branch the Robin is perched on. The punched foliage I embossed with a green glittery embossing powder from my stash. I added a Merry Christmas sentiment which I used some felt leaves and more foliage.I added some holly brads and some flowers and Merry Christmas ribbon. To finish it off  I used some lovely green pearl brads.
I am entering this in the following challenges -
