My pile of Christmas cards is growing and now includes this one made with an image from Lili of the Valley featuring this robin amongst the berried branches.  Colouring was done with pencils and the backing paper was from my stash.  A piece of pleated ribbon and printed sentiment were added and the snow on the branches was glittered although I'm not sure it shows here.

Image - from Lili of the Valley
Sentiment - free download from Netty's Cards
Pleated Ribbon - Stampin' Up from way back (no longer available)
Square Dies - Tonic scalloped square, Sue Wilson Noble Pierced square

  6. I love this fluffy little chap - looks like he has been at the Christmas Pudding! Very pretty card Val.

  7. Your image looks perfect with that design paper which I'm pretty sure
    I have some of. Having messed around putting my genealogy onto two computers because I couldn't do a straight transfer I thought going back to basics was a good idea!! Can't beat paper and pencil. Hugs Mrs A.
