+++ will try to replace with a daylight photo tomorrow, but it's a busy day so I uploaded tonight in case I didn't get there tomorrow +++
Today's sketch challenge was a shoo-in to make a card for the current ODBD Get Ready for Christmas challenge. I use the Cardinal Ornament more often, but I wanted cold colours so today I used the Chickadee. (We don't hve them here, and I took a little liberty with my colouring, making them more like a Great Tit!).
I stamped the image on watercolour with black and coloured with Polychromos pencils. Then I misted it with a homemade mister.
Snowflakes stamped on card with Versamark silver and embossed with silver EP, then misted, and die-cut with ODBD's custom dies.
White layer embossed with Darice ef. Originally I edged it with a silver pen but I smudged it, so second time round I pulled out some silver border stickers to make life easier.

Gorgeously colored image and the snowflakes were genius!
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ~Leo Buscaglia
