Cozy little chickadees

I'm back but this time with a little Christmas creation :D  I really wanted to play along with Meljen's challenges... there's a few, the sketch one as well as the bingo that they have going on.  I had won some images at Forever Night challenge, so I was dying to use them...

So this was the perfect opportunity to add to my Christmas cards... plus I had the most wonderful sentiments from Create with TLC... wow you have to see this set!!!!  Here it is
Isn't  that the most darling set?!?  You can get it here.  And it's really not expensive!!!!  This will be perfect for all your Christmas creations!!!!

For this card I used the image Cozy little chickadees.

For this card I used Toga - Le bloc à brico paper.  I cut out the digi with my standard circle and the Label 18 for the sentiment.  I used liquid applique and some warm hightlights glitter powder to make it sparkly.  I added a brad at the bottom of the card that comes from Eyelet Outlet.  The little pearl flourish is from the Dollar store.

Here's a closer look at the digi colored with my copics.  I used festive berries distress inks all around the digi and sentiment.
I just thought those were totally adorable!!!!  And just love the sentiment:

I'm really happy with the way this card turned out!!!  And one more for my Christmas stash lol

I followed this great sketch:

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
  1. Simon says stamps challenge - Dies and/or punches (dies)

  3. Perfect sentiments challenge - Birds or bloom (went with birds)
  4. Meljens designs dt - sketch
