Christmas Robin

I make at lease one Christmas card using this gorgeous robin image every year, this one is for my Mum to give to her best friend.


I have used an image and papers from my Joanna Sheen - The Jayne Netley Mayhew Collection Part 2 CD. This card will be hand delivered so I was able to add lots of decoupage layers, it is not actually a decoupage image on the CD so I print it out multiple times and cut my own.


I also decorated the inside of the card.


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

The Male Room Challenge 25 - Christmas or Seasonal Greetings
Cardz 4 Guyz Challenge 100 - Traditional Christmas Colours
Come and Get It Challenge - Anything goes Christmas
The Corrosive Challenge 239 - Merry Christmas
Pile It On Challenge 98 - Anything Goes Christmas/Winter
The Glory of Christmas Challenge 73 - Outside scene
Creative Moments Challenge 81 - Anything Goes/Traditional Christmas

Thank you for visiting my blog today, please leave a comment so that I know you've been and will be able to come and visit you.

Love the traditional robin and colours in your card. The decoupage details are wonderful. A shame this CD is no longer on Joanna Sheen's site I have seen it on ebay but worry about the quality of used CD Roms wish I had bought it when it first came out,

Gorgeous card, inside and out. Love all the fussy cut ivy, looks fabulous. Pauline, you must go through printer ink like water, and I never get such great colors as you do when I print from a CD. Beautiful work.
