Christmas Bird

I have made this card to add to my Christmas cards for neighbours, I really do need to get on and do some serious Christmas card making - I'm all behind as usual!


I have used the other image from the set that I used for my card posted on Thursday, I cut it out with a Spellbinders circle die and mounted it on a scalloped circle.  This time I used papers from The Echo Park 'tis the Season collection along with another Pink Petticoat sentiment.


I think I might change the Sue Wilson poinsettia for a slightly smaller one, it overwhelms the image a little doesn't it.

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

Another gorgeous card by your, Pauline. I think your papers are so very pretty and really make a lovely backdrop for that gorgeous image. I do not think your poinsettia is overwhelming at all. I think it is perfect. My vote is to leave it. Have a fun day.

absolutely beautiful Pauline love the image and the papers and design always perfect.

Pia S said...

The poinsettia is large, but you've created a balance for it with the size of the sentiment in the opposite corner, so I think this design works. Honest. But had the sentiment been smaller I would agree, but this isn't the case here. I think it's beautiful, leave it be and go ahead with your next ones:)
