The glory of Christmas challenge 59

This is my design card for the Glory of Christmas challenge 59, which is to feature a bird or birds or 'anything goes' as long as it's Christmas - we hope you will join in our challenge. Please click on the link to see the lovely designs of the rest of the team.

I decided to make a CAS one layer card ... I had to have a few attempts (thankfully, the card blanks won't be wasted because they can be covered with patterned paper). I've ended up with this version and, while I'm not really that happy with it, I decided I couldn't keep making different versions!

I've stamped an old Anita dove image and also the Hampton Art sentiment stamp, as well as six little stamps stamped into rings created with a self inked 7 gypsies stamp. The small stamps within the dotted circles were actually inked with memento grape jelly, a purple colour, but they look black here - it was so difficult to get a picture of the white card. I added some glitter on to just one area of the dove.

This doesn't show the white so well, but you can see the purple a bit better:

This is also for:

One layer Christmas 9: anything goes

Loves rubber stamps 151: add a sentiment

2 cute ink 129: bird theme
Dream valley 106: things with wings
Addicted to CAS 63: birds
