Pretty Christmas Bird


Hey, y'all! Awhile ago I fell in love with the adorable images by Victoria at Victoria Case Art Designs, and today I have the honor of being the Guest Designer for the VC Stamp Challenge. The challenge is a color challenge - dark blue, light blue, and white or ivory, and it's also a Christmas in July theme. I decided that "Pretty Bird" would work out nicely for a Christmas motif and also for the blues and white/ivory. I made my poinsettia ivory instead of red and painted it with Buttercream Shimmerz. The snowflakes are stenciled in Brocade Blue from punching out the snowflake with my MS punch. The bow was done with my Bow Easy from Sharon Johnson's Ribbon Store. He was so much fun to color and I think he makes a darling Holiday card. Hope you like him. Be sure to check out what the rest of the DT did for this week's challenge and then I hope you'll join us. Happy Thursday to you!
