A Hoot of a Christmas

Good Evening Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

I hope you have all had a wonderful day, I have managed to get into my craft room this afternoon and do a bit of crafting.  Tomorrow afternoon I will be making a start on finishing my Christmas cards.  I still have about 50 more to make so need to get my head down and get them done.  How are you doing with your Christmas cards?

Tonight's card is for the challenge over at Mad Crafter's Giggle Facebook group which is birds.  It feels like ages since I took part.

1.  7 x 7 cream square card which I have matted and layered gold and holly patterned red and gold card.
2. I have wrapped Christmas ribbon around before matting and layering onto the base card.
3. I have added a sentiment to the centre of the ribbon.
4. I stamped with image with Versafine and embossed with WOW matt embossing powder, then coloured with Copic's and added Spica glitter pens to the hats and berries.
5. To finish off I have added green gem stones to the corners.
