Christmas Robins

Hi - this is a very exciting day for me. I have the pleasure of joining the design team over at Ruby's Rainbows http://rubysrainbow.blogspot.co.uk/. 
The challenge this fortnight is to make a different shaped card. Only last week at the NEC  I bought some birdhouse shaped cards so they just fitted the bill.
This stamp is so festive. It is from WW.circadesign.co.uk  called Bird Box Xmas. I coloured it using copics and my new Atyou glitter pens  - again a new purchase from the NEC! I used my spellbinders circle die to showcase it on.
This is my finished card which I was pleased with as I hadn't been sure how they would turn out. I got 5 cards for £1 as well so what a bargain and as my friend Helen said, I can save one to use a s a template -(why didn't I think of that lol). I used another new die by Cheery Lynn Designs - Holly Flourish and the flowers are made using my tonic punch petal pairs to which I added some ice stickles. I added some gems around the sentiment and a beautiful double bow.
I decorated the inside to complement the front. This card is going to be for my wonderful Mum and Dad. I love them to pieces and as they both support the RSPB I know they will love it.
I would like to enter this in the following challenges -
