Morning everyone - I hope you are all keeping reasonably well (considering the weather). I feel better now that the daffodils are out together with the crocuses and the snowdrops! The tulips will be next of course - so here I am waffling on about flowers instead of posting my card but they are a cheery sight!
Sooooo onto the card, this is one for the CCC (Christmas Card Club) and the theme is 'Feature a Robin' - or two as in my case!! The wonderful Margaret chose this one for us - nice one! I love this digi, it's been in my folder for a while and I don't know where it is from so apologies.
As you can tell, apart from the image which I coloured with Copics and Promarkers, I have just used loads and loads of die cuts made from snippets of white paper. Having thought about it, I should have designed this as an aperture card with the image on the inside - isn't hindsight a wonderful thing! Anyway I made sure I used a good old sprinkling of Stardust Stickles plus a few pearls (can't do blobs properly yet Mrs J)!

I masked over the robins and then, using three Distress Inks, I 'pounced' a piece of natural sponge over the picture to make the night sky. I love doing this, it really is satisfying (well I am weird)!
