Little Robin Redbreast

It's time for a new challenge at Winter Wonderland and this week our theme is 'Little Robin Redbreast', we would like to see a robin on your project - don't forget Christmas projects only.

I have used an adorable coloured image from Fred She Said.

I printed the image several times so that I could decoupage it, I haven't used any designer papers for this card, I just embossed some white card stock with a holly embossing folder and punched the edges.  The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards.

This week we have two sponsors:

Marianne Design

who are offering a stamp of the winner's choice

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

CHNC Challenge Extra for April - Anything Christmas
CHNC Challenge 172 - Make it Square
Creative Inspirations Challenge 261 - Lots of Layers
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Animal Antics
A Little Bit Crafty Challenge - The Birds and the Bees
Natalie and Amy's Challenge 19 - Embossing
Creative Knockouts Challenge 33 - Furry or Feathery Friends
Sparkles Christmas Challenge 39 - Inspired by a Christmas Carol/Song (When The Red, Red Robin Comes Bob, Bob, Bobbin' Along)

Make sure you pop over to the Winter Wonderland Challenge blog and take a look at the fabulous DT inspiration, we would love for you to join us for our 'Little Robin Redbreast' challenge - don't forget it must be a Christmas card.
