Simon Says Stamp Songbird Branch Card

 Hi all :-) How are you all on this bright and cheerful December morning ?  I hope the sky is blue and the birds are chirping in the trees :-) 

I am finally getting into the Christmas spirit, I have carols playing on the ipod and the smell of Delia's Cranberry Mincemeat wafting from the kitchen :-) This afternoon we will be making a start on decorating the tree ! Feeling very Christmassy :-)

I am here to share another card made using the gorgeous new  'Songbird Branch' Die that is in the new  DieCember™Craft Dies

 I used a new Simon's Exclusive Tiny Dots Stencil and Trees Background Stamp to create the backgrounds and one of the new Stitched Squares Dies to make the frame.
The Trees Background was heat embossed using the Enchanted Gold Powder that was in the November kit, lovely and sparkly :-)

I used a Gold Shimmer Spray to spritz and splatter the background within the frame but that isn't showing up so well in the photo,  you can see it a little better on the angled shot.
 It looks lovely IRL though, even tho I do say so myself :)

 I think this is one of my fave Christmas cards I have made so far this year :-)

Thanks for looking ! I hope you have a wonderful weekend, find some time to put your feet up with a glass of sherry and listen to Michael Bublé :-)
