{TCPTUES188} Winter Birds

Hi there! Today is Tuesday, and you know what that means...time for another TCP Tuesday! This week Lori is our hostess and she has put forth a challenge indeed! A colour combo that had me dreaming of February and sweet valentines, but I am on a mission to finish some Christmas cards and actually GET THEM MAILED OUT!! Can you imagine, a cardmaker that doesn't get anyone their cards in time, if ever?? Well folks, that person is ME! (Step one: admitting you have a problem...that's as far as I've got;)
Here is the combo, if you want to play along! And you should! I'll tell you more about that later;)
Here is what I came up with, using Nesting and the sentiment from our newly released set, Merry Christmas, Honey.

I also cut a super sparkly snowflake (SU's glitter paper in silver in case you are wondering;) with the Snowflake Cutup Die. I topped that with an elegant metal button and glittery pink brad. The sentiment flag is hand cut and |I added some sponging to that, as well as the main circular panel using memento's London Fog grey ink. The birds were stamped with Cherry Cobler ink (SU) and the nest.branch in chocolate. I applied thin lines of Crystal Effects, tracing parts of the nest, then sprinkled a very conservative amount of glass glitter (also SU) to give the nest an icicle effect.

Alma just announced this months Swanky Stamper! Maybe next month it could be you! You have to play to win!! Link your card up to the Dancing In Pajamas blog or use the keyword TCPTUES188 if using SCS. We also offer weekly, random prizes too:) Good Luck!
