Robins On Branch

Hi all, I am here with a card for the ABC Christmas Challenge, did you know that there are only 129 days left to Christmas!! It's almost time to start mailing the cards!! ;-)

This time it's the lovely Wilma's turn to host and the theme for this fortnight is:

Q - Quick layout

I used a super cute new Robins on Branch from the Wild Rose Studio

The papers are from a Birds and Berries Paper Pack and I also used a Snow Frame which I smothered with some new Nuvo Glitter Ice White,

I tell you, it's like a blizzard in a bottle!! my new icy fave, it doesn't show up very well on photos but it looks like the whole frame is in a deep freeze! To be perfectly honest I bought it because I liked the bottle, and now need to get the rest of the colours, they will look so pretty on my desk, and I do LOVES glitter ;-)

I also used the same glitter on their little hat trims.

I finished the inside using a sheet of paper from the  Birds and Berries Paper Pack,  I really like how this has turned out ;-)

 The card is a little bit larger than my envelopes so I made a custom one using an Envelope Punch Board.

Thanks for looking, I hope you will all get into the Christmas spirit and join in! Pour yourself a thimbleful of sherry, pop Michael Bublé's carols on your iPod and crank up the volume, you will be surprised how quickly you will get into the mood,,,,,well, it works for me ;-)
