Christmas Card Challenge #47

Good morning! It's time for this week's Christmas Card Challenge #47. This week's challenge is a recipe challenge - 2 designer papers, 1 ribbon, and 1 bird.

I decided to go very non-traditional. I LOVE these *cute* patterened papers from the Echo Park Holly Jolly Christmas collection!

For my bird element, I used the dove from the Sparkle and Cheer stamp set by Taylored Expressions. I stamped it in Memento Rose Bud and Memento Pear Tart...even seen a pink dove? :) I layered my image panel on several panels of Oval Nestabilites and accented it with Liquid Pearls. Of course, I did some stitching, too!

I used my new Oval Tab Dienamics from MFT Stamps and stamped the sentiment on it with Memento Rich Cocoa. I added a border with the Jumbo Scallop Border Dienamics, also by MFT Stamps. I finished it off with a bow!

Be sure to head over to the Christmas Card Challenges blog to see all the inspiration from the design team!
