Holiday Redbird

Happy Wednesday!  Can you believe it's December already?  Wow, the time is just flying by and I really need for it to slow down.  I have most of my Christmas shopping done...yay!  But there are so many other things I wanted to make before Christmas and I'm running out of time.  But I did manage to get another Christmas card made.

This image is by MelJen's Designs and it's called Holiday Bird.  This image is a freebie, can you believe that?  You can go here to print a copy.  I colored the image with my copics and prismacolors.  I used stickles on the star and my Stardust pen on the swirls for some Christmas sparkle.  I used some pearls to decorate the corners and added a bow and a pretty little red flower to finish it off.  This was a very easy and quick card.

Thanks for stopping by!
