Robin Christmas Card

Hi Everyone, firstly I have to welcome a few of you who have chosen to be my new followers, I very much appreciate your trust in me keeping you interested. Thank you xx

My card for the Outlawz sketch challenge this week is for Christmas, yeah! must have got at least 3 ready now LOL.

Anyhow, something different, I have been going through the vast amount of cutting files I have, even made a few boxes, (another post) shamefully, most not used before, these are 2 of them.

One that I came across started it all, that was the Robin on a branch, so easy, even to layer, and the holly frame which was just as easy. I've added a link and as you can see I have had them for years and not used them, isn't that disgraceful?

My biggest choice was what to use for the diagonal backgrounds of the sketch. I decided on a "snow" background, I wasn't sure of the colour choice, but thought I would go with it.
