Heaven and Nature Sing

     I hope you are enjoying your weekend.  Our weather finally feels like fall.  It was a good day to take my dogs for a walk.
     My card today celebrates Christmas.  When I saw this paper from Memory Box I knew I would use these stamps from JustRite.
     I colored directly on the paper to take advantage of the snowflakes.  It just adds a festive touch to the birdhouse.  
     The embossing powder is Hollyberry Red Gold from Mother Rubber.  It matched the paper perfectly.  Mother Rubber has some beautiful & unique powders.
     The trees are fabric.  They were in my Christmas stash so I don't remember where they were purchased.  The holly is a Martha Stewart punch.
     The center is popped up with foam dots.  Diamond glaze was used on the bird and leaves.  Diamond dust gave a touch of snow.  It looks nice in person.  Sometimes it comes across as the mumps in a picture!!
     I'm entering my card in the JustRite sketch challenge.  You'll be happy to know I didn't drive myself crazy on this sketch.  I was proud!  It will also be entered in Flourishes' Timeless Tuesday celebration challenge.
     Enabling alert....Ellen Hutson is having a 15% off everything in her store until Oct. 1st.  Just click on the blinkie at the top of my side bar.  She has great customer service!
