Traditional colours


I'm off to the hairdressers this morning and a bit of shopping but before I go I want to share this Christmas card with you. I love this cute stamp from Stamposaurus and just for a change I have paper pieced the birdboxes and coloured the rest with Promarkers and Sakura pens. Love these Sakura pens for a touch of sparkle. I have edged the image with DI Worn Lipstick and used various bits of pieces of papers, that's the great thing about red and green Christmas papers, they mix and match so well. The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards and a few pearls from The Hobby House to finish. I would like to enter this into the traditional challenge at Sparkles Christmas.
