Winter birdies

There's a new challenge over at  Outlawz Twisted Thursday and this week the optional twist is THINGS WITH WINGS. I used an image from our sponsor this month, Ppinkydolls, colored up with Promarkers.

Since Christmas is sneaking up on us I decided to give this non-Christmas image a Christmasy look, so I added frantage for snow and punched pine branches. I framed the scene using a stitched frame die from Dienamics and decorated it with a bow made with a Tim Holtz die.The sentiment is a piece of fabric and I also added some cheesecloth.

This card is also for these challenges:
Inky Chicks - #59 - Christmas
Papertake Weekly - Let It Snow
Come and Get It - Winter Holiday
Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes
