Bird Chorus

It's time for a fabulous new challenge at House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge and our theme for this fortnight is Anything Christmas hosted by Tracy, for my card I've used a decoupage image from Joanna Sheen's House-Mouse Triple CD, have you seen the new Gruffies and Happy Hoppers CD - it looks brilliant.


My papers are from the DCWV Christmas multi stack and the sentiment is from the CD.  I have embellished my card with some Lawn Fawn die cut hearts that have had a liberal coating of 3D Crystal Lacquer.

You can see some of the decoupage layers in this photograph.
