Completely Christmas 36: anything goes with a twist ... add a robin

It's time for a new challenge for Completely Christmas and challenge 36 is asking for anything goes (Christmas) with a twist ... add a robin. My robin is a felt decoupaged one from Hobbycraft that sits nicely on the printed out Paper Pretties 'deck the boughs' with one of the greetings that came with the digi. Colouring was done with spectrums and art institute glitter added to the bauble.

As is usually the case with a mainly white card, it was difficult to get a photo that showed the card to full advantage - looks much brighter in real life.

This is also for:
