Winter Birds for Merry Monday

It's the last Merry Monday of November.


The lovely Kathy has chosen our challenge this week.


You know I loved this challenge!

My dear friend Mary (Carolina Cards by Mary H.)
gifted me with this awesome stamp when we met in real life last Spring.

I've actually had this done for quite a while just waiting for the perfect challenge.

I stamped the image on Whisper White with Memento Tuxedo Black
and colored with Copic Markers.

After fussy cutting it out, I adhered it over a lightly stamped background
with dimensionals.

A little Dazzling Details on the snow covered branches
and Flower Soft on the pom poms finish it off.

is in it's final week for this year.  I'll just make the deadline.
Thanks Sarn for doing this challenge each month.

is ANYTHING GOES.

is ANYTHING GOES

Be sure to go over to Merry Monday and check out
all those fantastic Design Team cards
and the gorgeous gallery additions.
We'd love for you to add to the gallery too.

I'm glad you could stop by.

Enjoy!
