DCM - Birdies!!!

This week is was Rein's turn to set the dare:

Bird, Birds and More Birds

"I love birds so I'd like you all to make a card featuring birds this week
......a bird in the snow, a birds nest, a carrier pigeon, a white stork or birds in the sky, or...,or... even big bird!"

I love using birds on stuff!!! I decided that anything I do now just has to be Christmasy as I have so many cards to do!!! This image came to me in a stamped image swap I organised over on Bubbly Funk. I am so sorry but I can't remember whose it was now as I just tipped them all out in a pile in my excitement hee hee.
I used the gorgeous BG Wassail holly paper for the background...yummy stuff! I watercoloured the image and then went over the green with a sakura glaze pen. Little bits of gold pen were added as well as a bit of glitter on the stars.
Thank to whoever provided the image, I think its lovely X
Thank you for taking time out to have a look XXX

Gosh that's an unusual stamp. I don't remember seeing that one. Nice card and great interpretation of the DCM.

I do love the little stand for your cards it's really cute. :)

I don't have anything that fancy on my blog but I do have something waiting that I'd like to give you. X
