Just Cute Bears and Friends

Hello everyone!  I hope you're having a wonderful Sunday.  There's a new challenge over at the Just Cute Bears and Friends Challenge Blog.  The new challenge is to use black + white + one other color.  I used red as my additional color.

My image is Peace Birdie by Stampendous.  I love this stamp.  I think it's adorable and it's perfect for a quick and easy card.  I colored my image with Prismacolor pencils and gamsol and cut it out with my Nestabilities.  I used my Swiss Dots embossing folder and some black gingham ribbon tied into a bow.  I used my punches for the flower, snowflake and branches and used Glamour Dust to make them all sparkle.  So, I have another Christmas card completed and ready to add to my stack...yea!

Don't forget to stop by the Just Cute Bears and Friends Challenge Blog to check out the beautiful work by the other DT members.  Thanks for stopping by to visit.
