I've been working on some cards for Christmas and wanted to try a different color scheme. This card looks kind of vintage to me and I like the colors even though they are not the traditional Christmas colors. I copied the design by Barbara Meyer.
I thought that the card needed "something" to go with it, so I designed this little bird ornament. I used a Sizzix die and some vintage papers, a little stamping, ribbon, accents and a tie to hang it from the tree. The eye is a pearl that I colored with a Sharpie marker to match the color scheme.
I had so much fun designing the bird that I think I will make some more "friends" to go with him. Stay posted!
