Bellariffic Friday - Animals

It's been a full week of Christmas here!  This week's theme for Bellariffic Friday was "Animals", in the image, the paper or an embellishment.  I haven't inked up Merry Christmas Branch with Birdies in a while and need to keep plodding on with my Christmas cards.

I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured it with copics.

The pattern paper is by 3 Bugs in a Rug, Candy Stripe and I paired it with some SU Real Red that I ran through my Polka Dots embossing folder.  I added some crystal effects to the words - a very generous amount of crystal effects thanks to the larger than life hole in the applicator tip!  A bit of SU Old Olive wide grosgrain ribbon, my Stardust glitter pen on the little dots and I was done.  I got the layout from my "Wishes" book (Pg 18) by Jeanette R. Lynton - an excellent book!  This really was a very easy and fast card to make and would be perfect for all my overseas friends as there are no bulky embellishments to add extra postage!  Have a great weekend.

Too cute, Leslie! The birdies look awesome, getting ready for Christmas! And aqua blue and red is one of my favorite color combos, so I LOVE this! :)

This is stunning- the shading on the branch is perfect and love the glaze on the letters
