Joyful Robin

After a couple of busy days, I've finished a card that I started on Tuesday for the Make My Monday challenge . Their theme is to Make a CAS Christmas Card with emphasis on the Sentiment.

Here it is

The text and jumping reindeer were Versamark stamped and gold powder heat embossed. In the center of the 'O' I sponged a blue sky over a snowy hill with holly trees in the foreground, and sat on the rim of the letter is a robin ( mounted on 3D pads ) who is looking through the hole.

 Here is a closer view of him

Recipe : Card = White card from my stash
Stamps = Clarity and Papermania
Inks = Versamark, SU Pool Party, Poppy Parade, and Green and Brown Pro markers
Tools = Heat gun
Extras = 3D pads

I must say a big "Thank You" to my lovely sister Cassy, who bought the reindeer stamp for me, together with a Santa Sleigh that I promise I'll use soon.

I hope she likes what I've made?

I must confess to Jacqueline that this is my second attempt at the card ( I started the first at her house on Tuesday! ) as I wasn't happy with the first scene, and, I dropped the holly stamp which landed in the wrong place to turn it into a "Happy accident". This card I'm much happier with.

Thanks for dropping by today, and I'd love to know what you think if you have time to leave a comment?
