Christmas Robin

I have created this simple Christmas card to enter the January 2018 Rudolph Days Challenge,  as always the theme is Anything Goes as long as it's Christmas.


I have used a kit from Craftsuprint.  I added a couple of layers of mirri card but apart from that this card is quite flat - perfect for posting.


To embellish I die cut a snowflake and added some gold enamel dots.


I would like to enter this card into the January 2018 Rudolph Days Challenge - Anything Christmas Goes.

Thank you for visiting my blog today, please leave a comment so that I can come and visit you.

A most handsome robin. Your English robins are so much prettier than ours here. Ours are more gray/black with a sort of faded burnt orange breast.Not as chubby & cute either perhaps. Love how you've done the nice matting with the elegant touches of sparkle gold. TFS

Carol L said...

Very pretty image with all those gold accents! NJ!

Brawny said...

This is a lovely card, Pauline. It has a great image and the mirri card must look fabulous IRL. It always gives such a professional look!

I also like that this card looks as it would mail for regular postage!

Thanks for taking part in the January Rudolph Days Challenge.

Donna Ellis said...

Beautifully layered card, Pauline! I love those rich, earthy colors and your brightly hued robin. Your English robins have a sweeter look than our larger, leaner robins. It's so marvelous the way Mother Nature creates variations of the same birds, isn't it? Wonderful detail work with the background corners, too. hugs, de

Elegant! Your touch of adding mirri card is all this card needs, one doesn't want to draw the attention away from the beautiful robin picture.
