Peace and Joy and a Little Vintage Bird

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!


  1. I LOVE this card...and the bird!!!

  2. I love non traditional colors for Christmas. The card and bird are great - I see a whole flock coming.
