IB199C Tweet Winter

Hi peeps!  It's time for a new Inspired By challenge...look at these warm winter photos:

And here's our optional sketch:

And here we go!  I used the sketch and the bird as my inspiration, using some SU Tidings of Christmas DSP, and a little Close to My Heart black-capped chickadee::

I perched him on some Soft Succulent greenery from the same set and added some Crumb Cake "sparkles" and gold metallic pearls along with a little bow of Linen Thread:

The sentiment is from the same set, stamped in Evening Evergreen, and the panel behind the chickadee is from Ornate Layers dies. I forgot to photograph the inside, but I added a birthday sentiment, as I am sending this to a friend for her birthday!  And I am embarrassed to admit this, but I have had this set for probably a year and this is the first time inking it up, so I am entering it into the Little Red Wagon's Never Before Used Stuff challenge!  

I hope you'll play along with our challenge this you can see, your creation doesn't have to be a Christmas one!  Share it with us at Inspired By, we can't wait to see it! Thanks for popping by today!

So the tree is all decorated; Cassidy is almost too big for Wayne to pick up any more, LOL!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!
