Chickadee Birthday

DSCF6331 I saw this sweet chickadee image on SCS and immediately knew I had to have it!  Even though it is probably considered a Christmas image, I used it for a birthday card for my sister, because we both love birds, and I just thought it was still appropriate for a January birthday!!!


This little guy is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics; DP is BG's Wassail---it really is more of a green than shows here!  I added some shimmer with a Gelly Roll pen, which of course, doesn't show up here!  A few pearls added a little extra elegance.

And here are a few more wonderful cards to share with you:

A very sweet "quilted" card from Beth:


An adorable card from my CTD buddy Danielle:


and a very cleverly-done set of ornaments by Robyn:


I am going to try to sneak in some stamping time before dinner!  Thanks for visiting today!

That is a beautiful bird. Your coloring is perfect. Your sister will love it. You readers need to know that holly grows were you live. You don't just see it at Christmas.
I can see why you love to get your mail. Most of us just get bills.LOL

Honest to Pete, I have your Christmas card signed and addressed but for some reason I still don't get them all in the mail! Maybe some day...

Beautiful card! You did a fabulous job coloring! The holly berries look like they're raised up from the cardstock! Great depth!
