Merry Christmas Birdies

I thought I'd go ahead and get my entry for Bellarific Friday posted a couple days early.  YAY!  I'm so often scurrying around at the last minute.  This is a really nice change!!

I have chosen this cute little birdies on a limb image, Merry Christmas Birdies on a Branch.  I stamped this two or three weeks ago, but hadn't gotten back to coloring it up until last night.  It's really quick and easy to color, but still packs a big punch (I think).  I didn't feel well today, but finally felt like doing something, so I pulled everything together to finish it.

Emily's requirement for this challenge is to use glitter/glitz.  Got that handled.  I glittered up the birdies' wings, part of the branch and the berries (not my favorite part of the glitz).  I also used Bella's ruby red bonbons which I got with my last order.  I paper pieced the Merry Christmas banner and sponged some VersaMagic wheat chalk ink.  Oh... and I embossed the white background sheet with Cuttlebug's snowflakes.

For the layout, I used Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge.  Mercy always has great sketches... I just don't always find the time to work them up.  I'm glad I was able to use this one!

I'll also enter this in the Cuttlebug Challenge.  This challenge was also for glitter!  Love glitter... love challenges that call for glitter!!  : )

Thanks so much for stopping in today.  Come back soon!!
