For The Birds

I'm making an early start on Christmas cards for next year!  I've used the For The Birds digi which is the free December image from the progressive monthly challenge at From The Heart digital stamps.  I've used my circle Nesties to cut him out (just about got the sizing right!) and then the lacy circles layered behind. 

I've gone for an ice blue and chocolate brown colour scheme and found matching papers in my stash (Polkadoodles) plus a freebie tag from Cuddly Buddly.  I've coloured the image with Promarkers and stickles and added a dotted line around the edge with a blue gel pen to finish.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

I Heart Card Sketches:  Sketch Followed
From The Heart Stamps:  Monthly Progressive Challenge
Allsorts:  Brown and Blue
Crafty Calendar:  Cold and Frosty
Cut It Up:  Christmas and Die Cuts
