Christmas Bird

Hi's really been a long time since I posted anything on here. I was so busy trying to get things finished in time for Christmas and didn't have the time for posting extra stuff. I hope that everyone had a wonderful Christmas, and was able to spend it with their loved one's. We had a very nice Christmas with my MIL and FIL...and my dh's niece and her husband. So I did some work on a couple of cards...actually I made 30 some odd cards, but they were a variation of some that I have already posted so I won't be posting them. But I did do a card using a wonderful image called Christmas Bird by Priscilla Styles. You can find the image here. It is such a wonderful image to work with and I hope that I did it justice. I started out with a shimmering red paper that I got from my local craft store Bartell's,  as my base. I used a deep purple paper from Michael's underneath the image.
I colored the image with SU water color pencils and used gold glitter pen from Michaels to color in the sentiment. I also used the gold glitter pen to color the bells and the middle of the ribbon.

I used a red glitter pen (from Michael's) for coloring in the holly berries and a green metallic pen (also from Michael's) for coloring the holly leaves. I used Star Dust stickles for the snow on the tree branch and since I wanted the image to be the focus of the card, I only added a small red pearl in each corner.
