Nature's Wonders

Good evening all, well what a wonderful weekend, such gorgeous weather, the only downside was I didn't get much crafting done but we can't have it all can we.

I've been busy trying to get lots of Christmas Cards ready for the Christmas Fair I'm doing in November but thought I'd take a bit of time out to blog this one as it seemed just right for the CD Sunday challenge this week - Nature's Wonders.

This lovely Robin is from Joanna Sheen's Jayne Netley Mayhew Part 2 CD and I just love it.  I'm really into decoupage again at the moment so I printed out loads of extra sheets and decoupaged him up, I even cut out more holly and decoupaged that up as an embellishment.  Yet again I didn't have any ribbon the right colour so out came the ProMarkers, the sentiment is also from the CD and I just added some card candi to finish with.

I used another sheet of matching backing paper from the CD to decorate the inside of my card.

Image and Papers:  Joanna Sheen - Jayne Netley Mayhew Part 2
Card Stock:  Core'dinations 
Tools:  Spellbinders - Classic Squares (inside card)
Embellishments:  ribbon and card candi from stash
Sentiment: Joanna Sheen - Jayne Netley Mayhew Part 2

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

The CD Sunday Challenge - Nature's Wonders
Craft Catz Challenge 102 - Things with Wings
Sketchy Colors Challenge 87 - Red, Green and Grey
Don't forget to pop over to the Willow Sketchie Challenge Blog  there's still time to have a go at this weeks challenge, we have another great prize this week.

Thank you for looking, please leave me a comment and let me know what you think.

Robins on Christmas cards are always favourites of mine and this one is beautiful. I have always enjoyed decoupage but it seems to be old hat at the moment so yours is good to see.
